Though Bernstein may best be remembered as a composer and conductor, there was a third aspect of his professional life that may have left the biggest impact—that of teacher. But we start with materials from Bernstein’s student days at Harvard—including papers he wrote, his dissertation, and class notes. As teacher it includes scripts (drafts and final copies, showing their evolution) for his appearances on Omnibus —his very first television appearances, beginning in 1954—his “Thursday Evening Previews.” Pre-concert talks for audiences at his New York Philharmonic concerts, and his lectures at Brandeis University as a visiting professor, and where he worked with students on his first opera, Trouble in Tahiti.
