Infinite Variety of Music by Leonard Bernstein
Book DescriptionWith style, wit, and expertise, Leonard Bernstein shares his love and appreciation for music in all its varied forms, illuminating the deep pleasure and sometimes subtle beauty it offers.He begins with an 'imaginary conversation' with George Washington in which he argues the values of actively listening to by learning to read notes, as opposed to simply hearing music in a concert hall. It also features reproductions of five television scripts from Bernstein on the influence of jazz, the timeless appeal of Mozart, musical romanticism, and the complexities of rhythmic innovation.Also included are his analyses of symphonies by Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, and Brahms; a rare reproduction of a 1957 lecture on the nature of composing.
