The success of the Unanswered Question series rests on Leonard Bernstein's ability to take difficult concepts, in this case music/linguistic theory, and make them accessible for a general audience. To be sure - he's at Harvard, and the lectures are long and penetrating, but it's a worthwhile listen to anyone interested in music. The focus is on classical music, but there are also long sections on music theory and history, and fascinating insights into its relationship with the human language.
Bernstein is an impassioned guide and orator, which makes for a highly watchable six hours.
