Released in 1954, On the Waterfront's Oscar-nominated score represented a rare venture into film music composition by Leonard Bernstein, one of the towering figures of classical music in the 20th century. In Leonard Bernstein's On the Waterfront: A Film Score Guide, Anthony Bushard examines this landmark work, a score that continues to influence composers of film and classical music alike. This book begins with a biographical survey of Bernstein's work, followed by an examination of Bernstein's compositional method, a look at the context of the film, and finally an analysis of the score.
Anthony Bushard is associate professor of music history at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln where he teaches courses in jazz history, film music history/analysis, world music, and specialized courses on American musical topics.
