Leonard Bernstein: On Beethoven's 5th Symphony

Leonard Bernstein on Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. He 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.

Shana Tova; a sweet and peaceful new year to all.
