Memoirs of a geisha by Rob Marshall( visu )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 2,371 libraries worldwide
"In the 1920s, 9-year-old Chiyo gets sold to a geisha house. There, she is forced into servitude, receiving nothing in return until the house's ruling hierarchy determines if she is of high enough quality to service the clientele -- men who visit and pay for conversation, dance and song. After rigorous years of training, Chiyo becomes Sayuri, a geisha of incredible beauty and influence. Life is good for Sayuri, but World War II is about to disrupt the peace"--IMDb
The piano quartets, opp. 25, 26 & 60 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( file )
56 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,995 libraries worldwide
This is a wonderful recording of two indispensable masterpieces. By adding the viola, which he loved to play, to the popular piano trio, Mozart became "the father of the piano quartet" with these very different works, the first somber and dramatic, though it ends with a sprightly finale, the second lyrical and serene. Mozart treats all the instruments as equals, but primarily alternates piano and strings, bringing them together in climactic moments. This means that the musicians must inwardly participate in the music-making during long rests to create continuity and seamless give-and-take, a subtle problem these performers solve admirably. These four superb soloists have a rapport so strong that thoughts and feelings seem to flow between them in an unbroken current. Their playing is technically impeccable; their phrasing and style are unanimous, elegant, and flexible; their tone, though each player has a different one, is beautiful and expressive; the piano sings ravishingly; Ax adds discreet, improvisatory embellishments, especially in repeats. They bring out all of Mozart's mercurial moods, the light and shadow, repose and passion, joy and sorrow. --Edith Eisler

The Vietnam War by Ken Burns( visu )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1,266 libraries worldwide
"In an immersive 360-degree narrative, Burns and Novick tell the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never before been told on film. THE VIETNAM WAR features testimony from nearly 80 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides. Ten years in the making, the series brings the war and the chaotic epoch it encompassed viscerally to life. Written by Geoffrey C. Ward, produced by Sarah Botstein, Novick and Burns, it includes rarely seen, digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, revelatory audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations and more than 100 iconic musical recordings by many of the greatest artists of the era. The film will be accompanied by an unprecedented outreach and public engagement program, providing opportunities for communities to participate in a national conversation about what happened during the Vietnam War, what went wrong and what lessons are to be learned. In addition, there will be a robust interactive website and an educational initiative designed to engage teachers and students in multiple platforms."

"In this cinematic concert, the concluding film of the Qatsi Trilogy preceded by critically acclaimed Koyaanisqatsi ("Life out of balance"), and Powaqqatsi ("Life in transformation"), mesmerizing images reanimated from everyday reality, then visually altered with state-of-the-art digital techniques, chronicle the shift from a world organized by the principles of nature to one dominated by technology, the synthetic and the virtual. Extremes of intimacy and spectacle, tragedy and hope fuse in a tidal wave of visuals and music, giving rise to a unique artistic experience that reflects Reggio's vision of a brave new globalized world."--Container back cover
The goat rodeo sessions by Yo-Yo Ma( Sound Recording )

The Goat Rodeo Sessions is an ambitious and groundbreaking project that brings together four string virtuosos: world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile. While each artist is a prominent figure in his own music sphere, they have come together as a unified ensemble on a most remarkable and organic cross-genre project. The music, including two tracks with female vocalist Aoife O'Donovan, feels both new and familiar; it's composed and improvised, uptown and down home, funky and pastoral and above all, uniquely American
