More on Poetry and Music

2011 Symposium2

In my last post, I discussed some ways in which poetry and music are alike. In the course of my discussion, I referenced Leonard Bernstein’s Norton Lectures. Today I merely wish to follow up on that reference, by providing you with a video of one of those lectures. It is in all nearly 3 hours long, but if that seems like an unreasonable demand on your time, listen for about half an hour. Begin at the 1:00:00 and end your listening, if you’re still inclined to stop, at the 1:36:00 mark. You will find Bernstein probing things that link music and poetry together.
