Bernstein Findings: What is American Music?
January 18, 1950 – WNYC, live from Tanglewood: “Here, seated around two pianos are four of the leading American composers – Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Lucas Foss, and Irving Fine… Probably the best way to give you a good picture of what American music promises for the future, is to just throw the topic to the four gentlemen, like tossing it to the lions, as it were, and let them bat it around…” As part of our Bernstein centennial celebration, the Library reconsiders the question “What is…

Dated 1893, it is a signed acknowledgment of a $2,000 salary payment to the distinguished Bohemian composer Antonin Dvorak, who had traveled across the world to direct our nation’s fledgling National Conservatory of Music. During his legendary years in America, Dvorak inspired a new generation of young composers to listen to songs of marginalized peoples and create uniquely “American Music.” His influence continued to reson…

Music for a City Under Siege
Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his Symphony no. 7, as Nazi bombs exploded outside his windows. Under siege in the city of Leningrad, Shostakovich wrote an epic symphony that seemed to mock the evil violence of the Nazis and celebrate the unbreakable will of the Russian people. The score, copied to microfilm, was smuggled across the world and delivered to Toscanini. On July 19, 1942, the NBC Symphony premiered the work as an airborne weapon for freedom. Hear the legendary broadcast of Shostakovich’s “…

Bernstein on Film: West Side Story
Russ Tamblyn and other West Side Story dancers on New York streets Directed by Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise. 151 minues, 1961. For once, Hollywood seemed determined to right by a landmark stage musical.

The movie, which st…

In this Solemn Hour
The winter of 1943 was a grave, scary time. War in the Pacific simmered. Berlin burned in what Edward R. Murrow called an “orchestrated hell,” and on December 2nd, German planes bombed allied ships carrying mustard gas at the port of Bari, Italy, releasing the toxic gas and killing civilians. In America on December 8th, resounding across the airwaves, Toscanini and NBC Symphony responded to grief and anxiety of the moment with solemn concert of heroic Italian music by Garibaldi and Verdi.
