Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver

Showtimes

In Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver, composer/producer/musician Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their seminal 1966 album, Revolver. In many music polls, Revolver is rated the top album of all time. The innovative album launched a period of studio experimentation for The Beatles that coincided with their decision to stop performing live. With many memorable songs, such as “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine,” and “Tomorrow Never Knows,” The Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been before. Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver explores the groundbreaking production techniques that went into creating this landmark piece of music history. In addition to the tracks from Revolver, Mr. Freiman will also explore the creation of two other Beatles songs recorded during the same time period – “Paperback Writer” and “Rain.” In this unique, captured-live multi-media presentation, Mr. Freiman conducts an entertaining and educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions. Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver is the third program in a series of four (following the White Album and Sgt. Pepper), to be followed by Rubber Soul.
