Notes & Reviews:
Joni Mitchell's work The Fiddle And The Drum delves into the artist's long-held concerns about the human race's blatant neglect of the environment and mankind's war-hungry nature. The piece is a ballet which is performed to a soundtrack of her music. Joni has called this work "the best project of her career." Combining three art forms- music, dance, and visual art- Joni creates an enthralling spectacle. Internationally recognized choreographer Jean Grand-Maitre of the Alberta Ballet Company has joined Joni for this production. The musical selections to which Jean Grand-Maitre has set his dance include works from Joni's entire career such as For the Roses, Passion Play, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, The Beat of Black Wings, and of course The Fiddle and The Drum. Special bonus features on this release include behind the scenes, video installations form the set, image galleries, and interviews with the performers.Notes & Reviews:
