When Leonard Bernstein hosted the Young People’s Concerts in 1958, he opened with the William Tell Overture. What did we see? Children with huge smiles. He stopped the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at the end of a phrase, turned around and asked the audience what the music was all about. In the moments that followed, music and the enjoyment of music changed. Some have said that he re-shaped the way we listen.
