    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1104] German Immigration to the U.S. We tend to think that the largest groups to immigrate to America were from Italy or Ireland. But that is not the case. The greatest numbers of people to immigrate to America were from Germany. Today, over 60 million Americans consider themselves of German descent. This program, shot on-location in Germany, takes a look at who they were and where they came from. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Great Performances [#3707H] San Francisco Symphony at 100 In 2011-12, the San Francisco Symphony will celebrate its centennial season. From the ashes of the great San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 rose the passionate desire of a community to embrace music and build an orchestra to restore its spirit. Thus the San Francisco Symphony was born a few years later, and it has spanned the past century to become a cultural gem in one of the most interesting and progressive cities in America and the world. In September 2011, GREAT PERFORMANCES partnered with the Symphony for a centennial gala concert program hosted by acclaimed writer and San Francisco native Amy Tan, featuring SFS Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas along with guest artists Itzhak Perlman and Lang Lang performing works by Copland, Mendelssohn and Britten. Concert footage is interwoven with short video stories highlighting unique moments in the Symphony's history as well as interviews with the performers and luminaries in the audience. duration 1:56:46   SRND51 TVG

    Violin Masters: Two Gentlemen of Cremona Narrated by Alfred Molina, this film examines the amazing confluence of time and talent that occurred in the early years of the 17th century, when the two greatest violinmakers in history were working within steps of each other in the small Italian town of Cremona. One, Antonio Stradivari, is a household name; the other, Guarneri del Gesi, is considered a genius equal in every way to Stradivari, yet most outside of the music community have never heard of him. Why is that? Eminent historians and experts such as Charles Beare, Carlo Chiesa and Duane Rosengard weigh in on differences in productivity, clientele, life span, working technique and the "PR" factor that characterized the two artists, while 10 of the world's leading violinists, from Itzhak Perlman to Joshua Bell, share what makes them fall in love with a particular instrument and count on it, night after night, to enhance their sound. For unlike other Renaissance masterworks, these 300-year old Cremonese instruments of immense value are not kept under glass in museums; they are at once works of art --- and working tools. Credit for that lies not in arcane "secrets" of wood, varnish, beetles, or climate, but rather, in the hands and hearts of the men, Antonio Stradivari and Guarneri del Gesu, sculptors of the world's purest sound. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Pacific Heartbeat [#104H] Keola Beamer: Malama Ko Aloha (Keep Your Love) "The idea of Aloha is Hawai'i's greatest gift to the world. But a lot of people don't know what it is, or how to find it, or how to discover it in our own hearts." These words, spoken by legendary Hawaiian composer and musician Keola Beamer, provide insight to the multi-cultural musical collaboration featured in Keola Beamer: M? lama Ko Aloha (Keep Your Love). Based upon Beamer's belief that musicians from different backgrounds can remain true to their own cultural heritage while learning and incorporating ideas from others, M?lama Ko Aloha features inspiring and unique musical performances by Beamer and a brilliant ensemble of musicians including Native American flute player R. Carlos Nakai and American jazz pianist virtuoso Geoffrey Keezer. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
