Gottschalk a musical portrait ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New Orleans born Louis Moreau Gottschalk has been hailed as "the forgotten genius of American music." He was the first American composer and pianist to gain international fame in the mid-19th century. In his work he pioneered a musical blend of African and Caribbean rhythms with his European musical training, which anticipated the developments of Ragtime and Jazz. His career was eclipsed in part by the events of the Civil War. Later, a scandal forced him to flee the country. He was largely forgotten for nearly 100 years until a revival of interest in the 1960's led by musicologist Robert Offergeld, who guides us through the "restless, footloose quality" of Gottschalk's life with rare insight. Internationally known French pianist and conductor Philippe Entremont performs a scintillating selection of Gottschalk's virtuous piano works and conducts major orchestral works with the New Orleans Symphony Orchestra, including Gottschalk's groundbreaking symphony, A Night in the Tropics. This colorful production was filmed on location in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro. --Notes from container label
Robert Indiana portrait ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Summary: The American pop artist Robert Indiana (b. 1928) first became known for his so-called "sign paintings", in which numbers and short, one-syllable words formed an integral part of his creations. He gained world-wide fame, even outside artistic circles, with his LOVE paintings and sculpture, the basic designs of which were appropriated for commercial use. This film visits the artist in his studio and traces the development of his work, focusing on some of his key paintings, including "Mother and father", one of his few figurative works. It also takes a look at one of the popular LOVE sculptures while it was on exhibition in New York's Central Park. Indiana himself talks about his art and the film features a musical portrait of the artist by the distinguished composer, Virgil Thomson. Awards: American Film Festival, New York
