“Once in a great while a movie becomes an artistic triumph, and Bernstein’s music definitely lifts “On the Waterfront” into that realm… Anyone who knows the film appreciates Bernstein’s contribution, and live-to-picture events help to remind people just how thrilling and significant it is.” (film music scholar John Burlingame). Leonard Bernstein’s score for the Oscar-winning film On the Waterfront (1954) is his only work composed specifically for film In a score of breathtaking complexity, beauty, and emotional inflection, Bernstein created a powerful musical rendition of the drama, conveying the individual characters through music of unfailing appeal and expressiveness. Nobility, violence, corruption, tenderness, aspiration, frustration, resignation. The gamut of human emotions and dramatic situations from the film are fully realized in Bernstein’s score. Bernstein’s music was nominated for an Academy Award for “Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture” and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the best film scores of all time.
