Leonard Bernstein: On Beethoven’s 5th Symphony (1954)

Leonard Bernstein on Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony: Bernstein makes a rather persuasive argument that a great part of “genius” lay in hard work, determination and abilities—a human necessity in order to find the right notes to put things together in the right order. Inspiration might come, but it's usually the result of the above. This was on the American TV series, Omnibus [CBS; 1952—56], broadcast at 4 p.m. on Sunday November 14, 1954; it was hosted by Alistair Cooke.
