伦纳德伯恩斯坦初次登台

伯恩斯坦被指派为纽约爱乐交响乐团的助理指挥只有几个月。年仅25岁的他并没有什么经验,开场前的最后一分钟,伯恩斯坦才被告知他将代替华尔特上场指挥,所以他没有任何时间排练。而那场由他负责指挥的音乐是一首相当的困难乐曲,此外,这场音乐会将会通过电台向全国转播。尽管背负了很大的压力,伯恩斯坦仍全力以赴并于终场时,赢得全场起立喝采。这件事立刻上了全国头条,伯恩斯坦因而一夜成名。

有些人认为他们即使面对压力也能做到最好;您曾在未经准备的情况下,被他人要求去运行某项任务吗?您的表现如何呢?是什么原因让伦纳德伯恩斯坦即使面对如此艰困的情况,却仍能表现出色?


Bernstein had been appointed Assistant Conductor for the New York Philharmonic only a few months before that night. Just 25 years old, he was relatively inexperienced. At the last minute, Bernstein was told he was to take Walter's place, so he did not have any time to rehearse. The music he was going to conduct was very difficult. Plus, the concert was going to be broadcast nationally on the radio. Despite all these pressures, Bernstein rose to the occasion and received a standing ovation at the end of the concert. The event made national headlines, and Bernstein became famous overnight.

Some people feel they do their best under the most stressful of circumstances. Have you ever been asked to do something you weren't prepared to do? How well were you able to perform? What was it about Leonard Bernstein that made him do so well in such a difficult situation?
