they'll be screening:
"Great Moments from Great Performances" Includes Serenade (Kistler, Nichols, Calegari, et.al) as well as Western Symphony (Roy, Soto, Saland, LaFoss, Alexopoulos, Boal, et al.) and Theme and Variations (Kirkland, Baryshnikov). [1978-90; 85 minutes)
Tuesdays - Sundays at 12:30pm
Thursdays @ 6pm
25 West 52 Street
MT&R The Museum of Television & Radio
By they way, they're screening different Balanchine work every week from 12/5/03 until 3/7/04.... A nice lunch break for those of you lucky enough to be in the vicinity!
If only there was someone out there to fund the release of this into general distribution. There's a foundation I'd like to see run: one that arranges and funds making such tapes available to the general public. It's not commercially viable, so it's not done. I wonder if research has ever been done into the costs of such a project as a non-profit endeavor. I guess as long as there's the ghost of a hope of commecial profit from anything like this, a non-profit distribution would be quashed. But honestly, I think all the entities involved would fare better down the road if these videos were available, because it would inspire more live performance attendence and that's the point in the end, isn't it? Has the existence of recordings of their music ever hurt the touring of rock groups?

(I don't speak German- does it say that it showed the whole three works - "Concerto Barocco", "Symphony in C" and "Serenade", or only excerpts? Oh, lucky German people!!! )
(Oh, by the way, I was pleased to notice the first link "Lesen Sie"... :grinning: Except that they made a mistake (twice http:) so it doesn't work!)
