I have the original book and 33 1/3 rpm records...fat lot of good they are now though..o_O I regret that I never managed to get to a concert of his in London, but love his symphonies.

I used to listen to the Harvard/Norton lectures in high school at our local library (33 1/3). In grade school, we watched his Young People's Concerts in music class (16mm film). If you haven't read a biography of LB, he had an amazing and entertaining life.

This series should be watched by anyone who does music. Of all the elements of my musical education over the years, I think this is what had the most deep and lasting impact.

The lectures are excellent and deeply interesting. I have the hardbound book that transcribes the lectures and contains all the musical examples.
