At the NYPL's invitation, ICE publicly addresses the famous Harvard Norton Lectures by Leonard Bernstein, given in 1973.  Originally titled The Unanswered Question, in reference to Charles Ives's immortal orchestral work, the lectures — extremely opinionated yet hugely charismatic and informed — became a flashpoint for music historians, composers, performers, and audiences.  Forty-five years later, and on the occasion of the Bernstein centennial, ICE tries to bring the perspective of hindsight to Bernstein's achievement.  Structured as a dialogue with musical performances, this event allows ICE to use its new-music expertise to gain a modern point of view on the questions that Bernstein so eloquently raised.
