    Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts.It was a matter of luck or fate that I stumbled into this book at a second-hand book market in downtown Athens. It was left unnoticed at the stand as people’s attention was drawn to more popular or modern titles as is usually the case.In a sense I was also left unnoticed at that period in my life, living in Munich, I met a girl, followed her to France, that didn't really work out and here I was, unemployed and alone back in Greece trying to figure it all out.We matched I thought, so I bought it.Little did I know that it would change my life.Little did I know about classical music too, having only a vague remembrance of musical terms from a few lessons we had back in high school. Truth be told I could not understand much and was almost giving up on it until…Until this: book contained the audio transcripts from episodes of the Young People’s Concerts series (broadcasted in the US during the 60s), and that was the first clip that I came across while looking for them.Suddenly it all made sense. What I had been reading on paper I could now understand and feel hearing the music. I was hooked, and alone in my room for days I binge-watched and binge-read anything Bernstein related that I could find. The discovery of classical music offered me the much needed consolation at that time and music being a lonely activity forced me into introspection.How else, if not by introspecting, can one select among hundreds of interpretations the one that really connects with his emotions and mental state? What difference does it make in your soul the precision and sharpness of this or the intensity and power of this? Which interpretation do you like and why? What feelings or memories do you get?The answers are inside us.Music was the catalyst, and with its discovery I was discovering myself. That process of self-awareness resulted in greater confidence and inner strength, and the belief that no matter how difficult times can be I will always have someone to rely on. Me.Now, in a strange sequence of events, here I am again in Munich facing the same dilemma. Different girl, different country.In music there is a term when the beginning theme is repeated a second time; recapitulation. But then the theme is repeated in the tonic key, releasing the tension, concluding the piece in harmony and ultimately signifying that everything that preceded happened for a reason.In life?

    fun illustrations accompany humorous but informative text describing complex ideas about music appreciation in ways that kids and adults can easily understand. Buy this for the studio and listen to the musical examples he gives.

    فصل هفتم با همه‌ی اختصارش مفید و جالب بود. این‌که موسیقی محلی کشورهارو فقط با گوش کردن تشخیص بدی هیجان‌انگیزه، و برنستاین خوب از عهده‌ی توضیح ارتباط تنگاتنگ موسیقی و زبان اقوام مختلف بر اومده؛ این بحث رو جای دیگه‌ای ندیده بودم پیش‌تر

    Un libro fantastico de la mano de Bernstein, quien ademas de director y compositor es un gran pedagogo. El autor logra con una sencillez ridicula explicar los elementos centrales de la apreciacion musical. Es un libro altamente recomendado para todas aquellas personas amantes de la música que desean entender mejor la expericiencia de la música.

    عنوان فارسی کتاب "تجزیه و تحلیل موسیقی برای جوانان" هست. کتاب از بخش های مختلفی تشکیل شده و نوسینده در هر بخش سعی کرده مفاهیم اساسی موسیقی را تبیین کنه. به طور کلی خوندن کتاب برای کسایی که آشنایی کمی با موسیقی دارن میتونه جالب باشه. به نظر من پیئستگی مطالب کتاب خیلی خوب نیست. حالا این موضوع ممکنه به دلیل ترجمه کتاب باشه و یا اینکه از اطلاعات کم من در مورد موسیقی نشات بگیره. موضوع مهم دیگه اینه که مسلما مفاهیم کتاب عمدتاً مربوط به فرمهای موسیقی کلاسیک هستند و اگر چه بعضی از مفاهیم در همه انواع موسیقی مشترک هستند ولی نویسنده موسیقی کلاسیک را عمدتاً تجزیه و تحلیل کرده. یکی از نقاط قوت کتاب اینه که بخش ها کاملا ساده نوشته شدن و این فهم مطالب را آسون میکنه. فکر میکنم خیلی خوبه که کتابهای آموزش مفاهیم موسیقی با نوار یا سی دی اگه همراه باشه اثر خیلی بهتری داره و من نمیدونم نسخه اصلی کتاب چنین چیزی داشته یا نه.

    اين كتاب در اصل مجموعه اي از سخنراني هاي لئونارد برنستاين رهبر اركستر آمريكايي معاصره. سيستم اين سخنرانيها كه در كارنگي هال نيويورك برگزار ميشده اينطور بوده كه برنستاين يه مبحث رو شروع مي كنه و هر جا مثالي لازم باشه اركستر سمفونيك ( كه به نظرم اركستر سمفونيك نيويورك باشه) اون رو اجرا مي كنند. بعدا اين سخنرانيها كتاب شده و اومدن آهنگهايي رو كه اركستر اجرا مي كنه نوتهاش رو نوشتن. انتشارات ماهور چند تا از اين مجموعه رو بصورت تصويري منتشر كرده يه بخشهايي از اين هم توي سايت يو تيوب موجوده. به نظرم فيلم سخنرانيها خيلي بهتر از كتابه.

    This is a great book for young people to develop an appreciation for classical music. It is also a great resource for music teachers to find great examples of various music concepts, such as the development of a theme. Bernstein's voice is charming and fun, perfect for kids. He incorporates various styles of music including rock and pop songs. It is very well rounded and comprehensive!
