Music, The Metaphorical Language - Leonard Bernstein At Harvard

The metaphor (carrying meaning beyond the literal, the tangible)... the generator, the power plant of music, as it is of poetry, ...stands midway between unintelligible and common place, ... most produces knowledge, accomplishing the supremely difficult task of providing a name for everything, ... name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable.

I love the ambiguity, the mystery! A friend inspired me to listen to Leonard Bernstein teaching about music the other day. I hope you'll enjoy as much as I did.

Bless.
