[1] Who Owns Your Culture?

The three part compilation is a preview of sorts which touches on the themes of an upcoming DVD, now in progress titled, "The Classical Revolution." Those three sections are here outlined in brief:

I. WHO OWNS YOUR CULTURE?

The Congress For Cultural Freedom --The counter-culture which was promoted as an intelligence operation by powerful financial interests, has now become the culture.

II. LAUNCHING THE RENAISSANCE

What does one do when the state is corrupt, and the masses are apathetic? Where does change then actually come from? Friedrich Schiller found a really fantastic response: that it can only happen through classical art.

III. THE RETURN OF THE VERDI TUNING

At the time of Verdi, the pitch was 432 Hz (C=256) and he wrote his operas for that pitch.  Going back to the Verdi tuning, and thereby breaking the perverse trend of the last decades of tuning ever higher, is a matter of respect for the artistic will of the composer, for his idea of color, of sound, of color of the voice, and also respect for the vocal instrument.
