Leonard Bernstein


Today in the Word, January 3, 1997, p. 8

Leonard Bernstein, the late conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra, was once asked to name the most difficult instrument to play. Without hesitation, he replied, "The second fiddle. I can get plenty of first violinists, but to find someone who can play the second fiddle with enthusiasm&md;that's a problem. And if we have no second fiddle, we have no harmony."
