The Academy Award-nominated FARINELLI takes us into the world of the world's greatest castrato. A strikingly gifted singer with a range of more than three octaves, Farinelli was given little choice but to sacrifice his manhood in exchange for his art, and as his career was founded on the surgery that would dramatically restrict his off-stage life, his art was in turn hemmed in by his family. Carlo's father declared early on that he should only sing the songs of his brother Riccardo, and while Farinelli's fame gives Riccardo's career a needed boost, the mediocrity of Riccardo's compositions holds Farinelli back. When the singer is given the opportunity to work with the great composer Handel, his brother's jealously and Farinelli's own poorly chosen career alliances stand in his way

Lautrec by Maguy Planchon-Bellet ( Visual )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Como si el resultado de sus famosas exhibiciones fueran alguna indicación, Henri de Toulose-Lautrec, probablemente podría ser descrito como el más famoso pintor francés en nuestros tiempos. Admirado mundialmente por la simplicidad de sus pinturas, su innovadora elección de lo selecto, su gran gusto por el detalle, y su siempre fascinante carácter. No obstante a estar físicamente obstaculizado, codiciaba ampliamente la vida, amaba el espectáculo y saboreaba lo sensual. Este genio pródigo, que muriera joven y tragicamente, es el centro de esta romántica historia. Que se enfoca en el intenso romance que vivió con Suzzane Valadon, la bella mujer que posó para muchos de los grandes pintores de la época, entre ellos Lautrec, Degas y Renoir. Es también una bella descripción de aquella época, a través de la cual Lautrec pasó con inimitable gracia".--Contenedor
