Picture Perfect: August 14 - Novels of the Gilded Age

age_of_innocence_soundtrack.jpg

“The Gilded Age” was a term coined by Mark Twain to describe the era extending roughly from the end of Reconstruction to the turn of the 20th century. We’ll hear music from “The Heiress” (Aaron Copland), inspired by Henry James’ “Washington Square;” “The Age of Innocence” (Elmer Bernstein), after Edith Wharton; “The Magnificent Ambersons” (Bernard Herrmann), adapted from the novel by Booth Tarkington; and “Mr. Skeffington” (Franz Waxman), after Elizabeth von Arnim.  All that glitters is not gold.  We peel back the veneer of prosperity, this Friday at 6 pm.
