Leonard Bernstein

Leonard Bernstein’s talent for bringing harmony into the finest detail is reflected in the Donation Pen dedicated to this great artist. For example, the gold-plated cap rings of the pen are inscribed with music and lyrics from the song “Maria” from “West Side Story” and are a testimony to Bernstein’s musical ability.
The clip is shaped into an artistically curved clef symbol, and the Leonard Bernstein fountain pen reaches a crescendo in the handmade nib, with its delicate engravings of a dove. As a musical finishing touch, the elaborate presentation box that comes with the pen contains a compact disc with selected works by Bernstein played by the Philharmonie der Nationen.
