Berlin's Jewish Museum-- a personal tour with Daniel Libeskind by Michael Blackwood( visu )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
This extraordinary haunting building, a zig-zag form reflecting an invisible matrix of addresses of Jewish Berliners who once lived in the area, is Daniel Libeskind's first commission. It took ten years to build, and it has become an integral part of the cityscape, attracting vast numbers of visitors and signaling a new era of Jewish-German history. Libeskind is questioned by Alan Riding, New York Times journalist, as he takes him through the building, which was initially intended as a simple annex to the adjacent baroque Berlin Museum. His concept for the new wing, though, was intentionally so incompatible with the main building that there was no way to connect them aboveground. To arrive in the Jewish Museum, visitors must enter through the 18th-century building and then descend to underground passageways and "voids," which in themselves give a strong sense of the tragic fate of the German-Jewish population during the Hitler years, even without any exhibitions in place. During this walking tour, Libeskind lays bare to Riding the entire architectural and philosophical concept of the building, an absolutely unique construct of innovation, intellectual prowess, and direct allusions to the lives and work of Berlin's pre-Nazi population of Jewish literati and artists, such as Walter Benjamin and Arnold Schönberg

Stern, Robert Venturi, and Philip Johnson, by former students and by architectural historians
Balanchine lives! ( visu )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Balanchine died in 1983, but his dances have lived on primarily because of the creation of the Balanchine Trust, established in 1987. Balanchine left his work largely to some of his principal dancers, who have banded together to guarantee the artistic integrity and fidelity of his ballets. This "team," imbued with the Balanchine technique, stages these ballets for ambitious dance companies around the world. Looks at "Concerto Barocco," staged by Patricia Neary for Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo; "Jewels," staged by Elyse Borne for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre; "Liebeslieder Walzer," staged by Karin von Aroldingen and Sara Leland for Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse; "Theme and Variations," staged by Susan Hendl for Miami City Ballet; "A Midsummer Night's Dream," staged by Francia Russell for Pacific Northwest Ballet; and and "Donizetti Variations," staged by Nanette Glushak for the Bern Ballet

Weisman Museum in Minneapolis, which he designed before Bilbao and without the help of computers; the Vitra Museum at Weil am Rhein, his first European commission; the Energy Center at Bad Oeynhausen, a technical and cultural center; and finally, the DG Bank Conference Center at Berlin's historic Paris Square, a controversial building which Gehry himself thinks may be one of his best works, and whose construction we follow throughout the film

Musical outsiders : an American legacy : Harry Partch, Lou Harrison, Terry Riley ( visu )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
American composers have long struggled against the momentum of the Western European classical tradition and the prestige it has held in America's cultural life. "I did not want to have any stricture at all, I wanted to be completely free." So spoke Harry Partch, describing not only his own path, but also that of two other influential American composers: Lou Harrison and Terry Riley. They were attracted to musical ideas and sounds outside of the surrounding classical mainstream. Together they offer a deeper understanding of what those alternatives are and how they have affected American culture
