Product Description:
This video includes footage from the Lido and the Albirizzi palace, and showcases the importance of music in Venice in the 20th century. It Begins with the International Music Festivals, also known as the International Festival of Contemporary Music. This festival was established in 1930, and is one of the biggest contemporary music festivals in the world, drawing classical music aficionados from all over the world. Over the years, musical geniuses such as Stravinsky, who’s compositional career was notable for its stylistic diversity; Schoenberg, who mixed the Romantic styles of Brahms and Wagner and single-handedly developed the idea of atonality; Bartok, one of the founders of comparative musicology; and Hindeminth, composer of Das Marienleben. It also covers the rise of Malipiero, Nono, and Maderna, who were all great composers in their own right. The video also covers the role of avantgarde music in Venice in today’s contemporary musical landscape. (52 minutes)
