Music and Dance

Show Summary

Music and Dance is an online video series from The New York Times. The New York Times is well-known as an American daily newspaper, but it has also maintained a strong online presence since 1996. In 2009, the publication introduced Music and Dance to its growing collection of web-exclusive videos. Each video in the series brings new sights and sounds from across the globe to the online viewer. In a short sub series, the paper's chief classical music critic, Anthony Tommasini, explains the importance of Johann Sebastian Bach and attempts to decide the top 10 composers in history. However, Music and Dance isn't restricted to the Classical era or prolific artists. One episode discusses the trend of Communist sponsored music festivals in China, noting the strange shift in the political party's sentiment toward rock music. In another video, The New York Times attends the International Whistlers Convention and talks to the winners and the losers. In such a broad selection of videos, every viewer can expect to find something surprising in Music and Dance.
