Letter from Leonard Bernstein to Serge Koussevitzky, October 29, 1948



excerpt: "...the greatest being special concerts for soldiers, Never could you imagine so intelligent and cultured and music-loving an army...with machine-guns outside accompanying our performances of Beethoven Symphonies!...I have played piano in hospitals for the new wounded of the Negev...Mrs. Frank Cohen advises me that she wishes to donate a scholarship for an Israeli conducting student at Tanglewood next summer."
