in Jacobellis v. Ohio (1964), I know good music when I hear it. For example, I like these Gardiner performances, but for Brahms Symphonies I prefer Bruno Walter, Giulini, Blomstedt, and many others. I like Dorati's Haydn Symphonies and Gardiner's Haydn Masses. I dislike the Emerson and the Lindsay quartets generally, though I haven't heard their complete corpse (sic), induction tells me to avoid it like death.
Mostly, I just meant to be humorous...and to start a discussion :)
I live around the corner from the movie theater that was the source of Jacobellis v. Ohio when they showed the movie "The Lovers" and got busted for obscenity. The theater is now an evangelical church. How's that for irony?
I hate to see an honest porn theatre go religious. Gotta' go now to read Marcus Aurelius and Schopenhauer for philosophical consolation...
Actually the film in Jacobellis v. Ohio was The Lovers, directed by Louis Malle. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052556/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_29
The theater was then called the Heights Art Theater. They showed basically "art house movies," such as films by Malle and other European directors that the mainstream theaters never showed.
Here's the whole story of the landmark court case and pictures of the theater from 1941 (when it was a regular movie house showing standard Hollywood fare) and 2012, in its last incarnation as a movie theater:
Thanks for the prick (sic).
Mostly on this forum, I read anti-HIP rhetoric and sometimes I weary of it.
Your OP brought out many of the usual suspects.
I haven't really gotten on the bandwagon, pardon the expression, of HIPsters playing post 1827 works but I sure like the lightness and transparency that is a feature of the classical and baroque playing.
