Scott Freiman, delivers a live, multimedia presentation on how the Fab Four created the best-selling album of the ’60s in “Deconstructing The Beatles: The White Album” at Danbury’s Palace Theatre on April 20.
What was it like for the Beatles when they were creating the best-selling double album known for such tunes as “Blackbird” and “Dear Prudence”? Scott Freiman, one of the world’s foremost Beatles scholars, answers this question in his live multimedia presentation, “Deconstructing The Beatles: The White Album.”
A composer and producer, Freiman will present his show at Danbury’s Palace Theatre on Friday, April 20. He will share rare insights, anecdotes, film clips and recordings, as he takes audience members on a journey that’s like being transported to the Abby Road Studio along with the Fab Four.
“Deconstructing the Beatles” allows viewers to see and hear the evolution of groundbreaking songs and understand their influence on music. The White Album came out Nov. 22, 1968, making this year the 50th anniversary of its release. Freiman focuses on tunes that have the most interesting backstories, and that best demonstrate the way the band’s members were writing and producing their music at that time. Aside from “Blackbird,” he highlights such classics as “Revolution” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Thousands attend “Deconstructing The Beatles” lectures annually at such venues as the Jacob Burns Film Center in New York and the Cleveland Museum of Art. In 2012, Freiman taught a 13-part course called “The Beatles in the Studio” at Yale University.
