The world has only ever known one Leonard Bernstein. And any orchestra today would give their eyeteeth to find another.

Yet that is exactly what the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra has had, and indeed what the entire nation of Canada has been fortunate to have ever since Maestro Bramwell Tovey first moved to this country in 1989.

Mark Swed, writing in the Los Angeles Times, called a concert Bramwell conducted there “one of the greatest occasions in the history of the Hollywood Bowl,” placing him in a pantheon with two other great conductors — Dudamel and none other than Leonard Bernstein.
