Bernstein on interpreting a score

Are you interested in replacing religion with art?

I see no need for “religion,” but Wallace Stevens thought art shld replace “religion” so I am happy to work toward that end.

Wallace Stevens on Imagination & Reality

I started this blog because  the major religions have not been
able to enact their beliefs for the majority of human beings
in centuries and I believe humanism now stands a better chance
of improving lives than do the old religions. The modern American
poet I admire most, Wallace Stevens, thought the arts and sciences
should replace supernatural religions as realistic sources of 
better lives for those who took time to learn something about them.
