Deconstructing The Beatles: The Birth of The Beatles
In the late 50s, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Richard Starkey were just four Liverpudlian teenagers who decided to play music. With no formal training and no ability to read or write music, they tried to emulate their American rock heroes. Within a few years, they would change music history (and the world) forever.
In this informative and entertaining filmed live presentation, musicologist Scott Freiman traces the birth of the Beatles from their days as the Quarrymen to their first visit to EMI Studios and the recording of “Love Me Do.”
Scott Freiman combines his love of the Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer, and engineer to deliver unique multimedia presentations about the band’s creative process. With rare insights, anecdotes, film clips, and recordings, he takes audiences on a journey through performances and recording sessions, allowing viewers to see and hear the evolution of groundbreaking songs and understand their lasting influence on popular music. Freiman has composed music for more than 10 films, as well as the Emmy-award–winning BBC/Discovery series Life.
