Product Details

A heartfelt tribute to New York City's bastion of classical music, Carnegie Hall features rare appearances by some of the most prominent figures of 20th Century music performing within the legendary concert hall. Based on a story by silent-movie actress Seena Owen (Queen Kelly), Carnegie Hall follows the story of an Irish immigrant (Marsha Hunt) who arrives in America just as the grand theatre is christened, and whose life is intertwined with the performers, conductors, aspiring artists and humble employees who call it home. A lifelong aficionado of classical music, director Edgar G. Ulmer (Detour, The Black Cat) captured the musical sequences with great care and at considerable length, making Carnegie Hall not only an engrossing drama, but a definitive visual record of the performance techniques of Artur Rubinstein, Jascha Heifetz, Leopold Stokowski, Lily Pons and many other unforgettable artists. * Includes performances by: Walter Damrosch, Bruno Walter, Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra of New York, Lily Pons, Gregor Piatigorsky, Rise Stevens, Artur Rodzinski, Artur Rubinstein, Jan Peerce, Ezio Pinza, Vaughn Monroe and His Orchestra, Jascha Heifetz, Fritz Reiner, Leopold Stokowski, Harry James.
