Deconstructing The Beatles' White Album

Deconstructing The Beatles' White Album

Synopsis: In Deconstructing The Beatles’ White Album, composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their bestselling album, The Beatles (commonly referred to as the White Album). Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music—from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in Beatles history that included the death of Brian Epstein, the creation of Apple Corps, and a trip to India to study meditation. In this multimedia presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road Studio for a look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of “Revolution,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Blackbird,” and other songs from the White Album. It will be an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions, allowing the audience to see and hear the evolution of these groundbreaking songs and their lasting influence on popular music.

Jonas Kaufmann: My Italy

Jonas Kaufmann’s My Italy

Synopsis: German Tenor Jonas Kaufmann introduces My Italy, a very special concert-documentary. Puccini & Verdi are not the main composers chosen for the event, however, but rather the golden hits by Nino Rota & Lucio Dalla. The concert is from Teatro Carignano in Torino, with the participation of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI conducted by Jochen Rieder. Kaufmann performs popular classic italian songs like “Torna a Surriento”, “Cor’ngrato”, “Mattinata”, “Parla più piano”, “Caruso” & “Il canto”. The film shows Kaufmann’s special relationship with the Italian language, the Italian way of life & culture - and of course, the music. "Italian music has the power to produce beautiful immortal melodies - bright and full of warmth - those you can’t get out of your head all day” JONAS KAUFMANN

David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii

Synopsis: 45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David's career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including 'One Of These Days', the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of 'The Great Gig In The Sky' from 'The Dark Side Of The Moon', which David rarely plays as a solo artist. This concert performance film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder . ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.

Songs include the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island, as well as other solo and Pink Floyd classics, including Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb.
