OAKMONT MUSIC LOVERS – Summer Documentary Series

Please note change of venue and start time
 
Fortunately for us, our resident movie documentary specialist, Ernie Rose, has agreed to present a series of music related films at our usual time slot on Tuesday morning s from June through September.  This is a real bonus and we appreciate his expertise in this field and his willingness to share it with us.

The June presentation features Toronto filmmaker Larry Weinstein’s 2005 documentary “BEETHOVEN’S HAIR” (84 min. 2005) based on the book by Russell Martin which focuses on the strange journey taken by a lock of Beethoven’s hair.

Soon after Beethoven’s death, a boy cut a lock of the composer’s iconic hair as a keepsake. Nearly two centuries later, that same hair was purchased by two American Beethoven enthusiasts at a Sotheby’s auction. What that lock of hair reveals—through forensic testing and the story of generations of owners—is the subject of this award-winning documentary film. The tale of the composer’s life and legacy unfolds against an aural backdrop of some of his greatest masterpieces.
