Excellent article about Leonard Bernstein's life:


And here's a brief video to provide some background for the film:

Leonard Bernstein and the film Maestro: from Sunday Morning in CBS News


Here’s the link:



The new film "Maestro" tells the complicated love story between composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein and his wife, actress Felicia Montealegre. Correspondent Mo Rocca talks with Bradley Cooper, the movie's star, co-writer, producer and director, about playing one of the most charismatic and controversial musical figures of the 20th century. He also talks with Bernstein's children (Jamie Bernstein, Nina Bernstein Simmons, and Alexander Bernstein) about the life and legacy of their father being brought to the screen.





And here's a compelling poem from our friend Ruah Bull


Peace in a Time of Revolution



To be still

in the curl of chaos

to welcome dark waters

and lightning strike


to steady in webbed roots

sinking down deep

as merciful wind

whips leaves, blasts dead branches


to choose this rough real-

a sacred gesture of the heart

emptied of all but

yes


The peace of God

is not my favored sleep

but rather trusting

this bloody death-

is bloody birth



- Ruah Bull
