Sting, Reading, Schumann
Tonight I'm thrilled to be attending a Screening of Twin Spirits with the film's stars--Sting and Trudie Styler--in attendance. I have more than a soft spot for Mr. Sting, from his years with The Police, his solo records, his forays into early music, hell even his performance in the movie Dune (which yes I know ages me). I saw him in concert in Los Angeles, in New York, in Italy, in London, and I've not forgotten any of it. More to report tomorrow, but looks to be a fascinating film wherein the letters of Robert and Clara Schumann are read accompanied by their music. The greatest love story in Classical music this side of Britten and Pears (tongue both in and out of cheek there, those relationships both being long-standing yet fraught), I'm looking forward to this flimic coceptualization.
More tomorrow. Now I have to figure out the HopStop to WNYC's Jerome L. Greene space--and sister moon will NOT alas be my guide.
