Bernstein Harvard Lecture IV: ‘The Delights and Dangers of Ambiguity’ presented by Pikes Peak Library District at PPLD -Library 21c, Colorado Springs CO

In a series of lectures filmed at Harvard University in 1973, legendary composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein examined music from every age and place in the search for a worldwide, innate musical grammar, using analogies between music and linguistics.

In looking at examples by Beethoven, Berlioz, Wagner, and Debussy, Bernstein explores what creates musical ambiguity, and how ambiguity leads to musical expression.

Using his examples from preceding lectures, he examines ambiguity at several levels of linguistic and musical construction, demonstrating the many layers through which music can communicate ideas.

These screenings at Library 21c are free and open to the public as part of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic’s The Best of All
