Times Ain't Like They Used to Be: Early American Rural & Popular Music, From Rare Original Film Masters (1928-1935)

Loading...
If you've ever been captivated by the striking faces of Depression era photos of rural America, that experience will be considerably magnified here when those same images come alive playing vintage American music. In the early days of sound film, in addition to covering major events, newsreel cameras captured the sights and sounds of everyday life in America, including its music. Musicians were filmed where they lived and played, captured by roving newsreel crews on street corners and front porches, at country dances and summer resorts in nightclubs, and broadcasting from churches and radio stations.

Leonard Bernstein's Young People's Concerts: With the New York Philharmonic

Loading...
Leonard Bernstein earned glory as a composer, conductor, and pianist (classical and jazz), but nothing gave him more pleasure than the joy of teaching. He presented the unique blend of spoken words and music. He is an intensely interactive teacher, getting his audience to sing, springing a quiz full of trick questions. He can take the most abstruse subject and present them to a young audience with clarity, without condescension, and with a clear sense of the material's value. His subject-matter is enormously varied.
