Through their presentation, Theory faculty members Keith Waters, Steven Bruns and Philip Chang show and discuss excerpts from Leonard Bernstein’s 1973 videotaped series of lectures, “The Unanswered Question.” Along with his masterful and entertaining explanations of musical compositions, Bernstein suggests some intriguing relationships between music and language. We consider some of them, and address further music/language correspondences in light of more recent approaches to the topic, drawing on examples from classical music and American popular song.

Date and time

Saturday, Sep. 8, 1:00 p.m.
