Format: Hardcover
This book includes excerpts from writings by the great maestro. Some very interesting and revealing of his thought process and others more humorous and random but still enjoyable. Some include "Sonnet: On Acquiring Knowledge" and his Harvard Bachelor's Thesis. Letters are included too. Overall, I recomend it if you're interested in writings from the pen of Bernstein.

Bernstein is lauded as a conductor, composer, performer and educator--monikers well earned. However, his influence as a thinker may trump them all. His efforts to analyze and ultimately realize the relationship of form and meaning to this day are felt. This is a must read for any music thinker (as is all of his Young People's Guide to the Orchestra scripts).
