Leonard Bernstein discusses Bach, with an extended excerpt from "The St. Matthew Passion", performed by members of the Schola Cantorum and the St. Thomas Boys Choir. Other illustrations will be performed by an orchestra, and by Bernstein himself at the piano and harpischord. The discussion will emphasize Bach's music as the culmination of nearly three centuries of musical history and will show the diversity of his appeal, jazz improvisations borrow Bach's techniques, he wrote quantities of church music, he wrote for organ, piano, harpischord.
