Features
The Infinite Variety of Music by : Leonard Bernstein


With style; wit; and expertise; Leonard Bernstein shares his love and appreciation for music in all its varied forms in The Infinite Variety of Music; illuminating the deep pleasure and sometimes subtle beauty it offers. He begins with an “imaginary conversation” with George Washington entitled “The Muzak Muse;” in which he argues the values of actively listening to music by learning how to read notes; as opposed to simply hearing music in a concert hall. The book also features the reproduction 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 Bernstein's analyses of symphonies by Dvorák; Tchaikovsky; Beethoven; and Brahms; a rare reproduction of a 1957 lecture on the nature of composing; and a report on the musical scene written for the New York Times after his sabbatical leave from directorship of the New York Philharmonic during the 1964-65 season.
