“Music’s Masterpieces,” Friday, August 26 @ 6pm: Hermitage Fellow Hilan Warshaw’s films explore the lives and minds of great composers, delving into the often-controversial passions and experiences that informed some of music’s most influential masterpieces. Blending documentary, narrative film techniques, and his own musical background as a violinist and conductor, Warshaw’s internationally broadcast films shine a new light on musical and operatic creators including Wagner, Schoenberg, Berg, Bach, and Mahler. For this program, Warshaw shares excerpts from his films and discusses the close relationship between the art forms of cinema and music. Presented in partnership with Sarasota Opera, this event is at the Sarasota Opera House, 61 N. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota, FL 34236. Registration is required at HermitageArtistRetreat.org ($5/person registration fee).
