Scott Freiman, the New York composer, producer, and engineer who delivers unique, acclaimed lectures on the music of the Beatles, returns to the museum. One year after his well-received talks on Sgt. Pepper and the "White Album," Freiman will present three new and different programs over three successive days. Employing rare audio and video clips, and recounting anecdotes about the recording sessions, Freiman walks audiences through detailed analyses of the songwriting and production techniques used by the Fab Four to record their landmark albums and singles.
In this program Freiman takes music fans on a journey through the Beatles' remarkable 1966 album that launched a period of studio experimentation coinciding with the end of their concert performances. With memorable songs such as "Eleanor Rigby," "Yellow Submarine," and "Tomorrow Never Knows," the Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been. (Multimedia, approx. 2 hours)
