    Classical Rewind (My Music) From the romantic mood of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata' to the dramatic emotions of Orff's 'O Fortuna', this program visits the greatest compositions and composers of all time. The program weaves the stories of their works with visual interpretations of the music set to iconic images of nature, fantasy, historical locations, architecture and art. Interviews with contemporary performers in both the classical and popular arenas offer shared musical memories and personal favorites.
    The program is designed to reach both long-time music lovers as well as those beginning the journey of exploring the masterworks. For many, this is the music they grew up enjoying and appreciating. For others, the melodies are recognizable from movies, television, commercials and even Fourth of July celebrations. This special explores the origins of the music, stories and anecdotes about the composers and their works, and how so many of the classics have become part of our common culture.

    American Masters [#2602H] Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock & Roll During the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Southern-born, Chicago-raised and New York-made Sister Rosetta Tharpe introduced the spiritual passion of her gospel music into the secular world of popular rock 'n roll, inspiring the male icons of the genre. This flamboyant African-American gospel superstar, with her spectacular virtuosity on the newly electrified guitar, was a natural-born performer and a rebel - one of the most important singer-musicians of the 20th century. She is acknowledged as a major influence not only on generations of black musicians - including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Isaac Hayes and Etta James - but also on white stars such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG

In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise.
