Late to the punch today, for which I apologize. Yesterday marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the passing of one of my personal heroes, conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein. He was, in many ways, the Carl Sagan of music, able to explain and illustrate things about music in ways that have influenced my own ways of thinking about music ever since. He was also an astonishingly gifted musician.
Thank you for the music, Lenny!
