Leonard Bernstein: What Does Music Mean

Bernstein’s “Young People’s Concerts” with the NY phil are so inspiring — not only did he write his own scripts, but the concerts were broadcast live with very little prior rehearsal (they would go over the program in the morning and then perform at noon). He later referred to these concerts as being “among my favorite, most highly prized activities of my life.” Major props to Leonard — teaching with a world-class orchestra at your disposal is pretty gangster.
