Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts, which I wrote about in my blog of Sept. 16, 2007, is something very special. It is a boxed set of 9 DVDs, each with three 1-hour concerts, in which Leonard Bernstein makes so many complex aspects of music seem easy and lots of fun. The list price on amazon.com at that time was about $180, and it has now dropped to $129.99, still way beyond the constraints of my budget. I borrowed the set from a friend, watched the DVDs, loved them, and wished I could buy them. Recently, I checked amazon.com again and found that one of their associated sellers with a high customer rating was selling the set for a mere $77.99 plus $3 shipping. Using my $50 in accumulated points, I could buy the set for just $31. That’s exactly what I did. Yay! It’s my Christmas gift to myself.
