Pink Floyd: Meddle - A Classic Album Under Review
Following the departure of their founding father, Syd Barrett, in 1968, Pink Floyd were forced to reassess their position on the musical map. By the time Meddle was released in 1971 - the album Dave Gilmour considers "the start of the path forward' - the band were demonstrating an expert grasp of the new sonic territories they had been exploring. The mega-selling Dark Side Of The Moon, which followed Meddle, would arguably have sounded a whole lot different had it not been for its groundbreaking predecessor.
Pink Floyd - Meddle: A Classic Album Under Review offers a hitherto undocumented level of insight into the band during the build up, recording and aftermath of their most significant musical turning point. Via the use of performance footage, long forgotten photographs, contributions from friends and colleagues, review, criticism and insight from a panel of esteemed experts - and lots, lots more - this film delivers the long awaited critical review of a world class band at their creative peak.
Features Include: Live and studio performances from the Meddle era, reassessed by a panel of revered experts Obscure footage and unseen photographs Review, comment and criticism from; Pink Floyd producer and Beatles engineer, Norman Smith; Floyd's 1960s touring partner and Soft Machine bass player, Hugh Hopper; founding member of Yes, Pete Banks; Floyd author and rock writer, Mark Blake; Classic Rock magazine's Malcolm Dome; author and Mojo journalist, Mark Sturdy; ambient music expert, Mark Prendergast; Wire magazine's David Stubbs and many others Footage of and comment on Pink Floyd's musical influences at this pivotal point in their career...
Prokofiev: Romeo & Juliet
Today, when Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet h so popular in the theatre, it is curious to recall how comparatively little known were the ballet and its music in the 1950s. The first Russian staging was made by Leonid Lavrovsky at the Kirov Theatre, Leningrad, in 1940, five years after Prokofiev had completed the score. It was in 1956, when the Moscow Bolshoj Ballet arrived in London for Soviet ballet's ground-breaking first visit to the West that die emotional force of this production was seen, and profoundly affected our audiences. On 3 October in that year, the curtains of the Royal Opera House. Govern Garden, rose to reveal the motionless triptych of Romeo, Friar Laurence and Juliet (who was Galina Ulanova, Moscow's divinity). Even now, the sensation caused by that evening lingers on We were bowled over by the power of Muscovite dancing, by the radiance of Ulanova's presence, by the Torre of Prokofiev's score. Ironically, in the previous pear Frederick Ashton, The Royal Ballet's master choreographer, had staged his own response to this music in Copenhagen Tailored to die modest forces of the Royal Danish Bailer, this production had a clarity very different from the epic sweep of the Bolshoj version. Within two years of the Bolshoi's appearance, John Cranko, who had made his name as a young choreographer with The Royal Ballet mounted a version of Romeo for La Scala Milan, and this he revised and developed in 1962 when he became director of the Stuttgart Ballet.
