Picture Perfect Now on Saturday: George Bernard Shaw

george_bernard_shaw.jpg

Prior to his death in 1950, George Bernard Shaw was granted complete creative control over a number of film adaptations of his stage works.  Of course, he was also an astute and entertaining music critic.  One wonders what he would have made of these selections from “Major Barbara” (William Walton), “Saint Joan” (Mischa Spolianksy), and “Caesar and Cleopatra” (Arthur Bliss & Georges Auric).  Shaw observed that most people go to their grave with their music inside them.  Hear some that made it to the big screen, this Saturday at 6 pm.
