This is the story of Tanglewood as told in first-person accounts by such luminaries as Leonard Bernstein, Serge Koussevitzky, Aaron Copland, Erich Leinsdorf, Seiji Ozawa, Yo-Yo Ma, James Levine, and many other leading musicians, critics and music professionals who consider Tanglewood a second home.
