4/25 Bernstein on Beethoven's 9 Symphonies

("Light'em up" Lenny)
I've featured Leonard Bernstein here several times before, but today Lenny is actually going to introduce all 9 Symphonies of Beethoven!  These were done for TV broadcasts of concerts with the Vienna Philharmonic in the 70's I think.  Even after all these years - there's simply nobody like Lenny!

Leonard Bernstein Introduces Beethoven's 9 Symphonies (36 min):
I'm tempted to add some kind of description to each of these - but that would spoil it...
1. Symphony 1
2. Symphony 2
3. Symphony 3
4. Symphony 4
5. Symphony 5
6. Symphony 6
7. Symphony 6 & 7 (w Maximilian Schell)
8. Symphony 8
9. Symphony 9

  1. Somehow that picture sums up Leonard Bernstein completely.

    Great links. Bernstein is rad as an educator.

  2. Thanks. This is a really lazy blog post text-wise, but sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

  3. Wait until you see my next think you're lazy...;-)

  4. We should compete to see who can make a lazier post. That's the kind of competition I can get behind.
