Re: [dannykaye] Re: unknown
- There is one on the concerts Danny conducted available
out there called "An Evening w/Danny Kaye, recorded at
the Lincoln Center conducting the New York
Philharmonic, that is a video.
"Unable to raed a note of music, celebrated actor &
humanitarian Danny Kaye became a guest conductor of
the Orchesrta Pension Fund Benefit Concerts. For more
than 25 years, he helped raise more than five million
dollars for some of the worlds's leading symphony
orchestras in North America & Europe
Mr. Kaye said, "WE play the music straight-no slopping
through it.-but what comes between the
numbers.....well.....it's not serious!
I love the symphony and have the greatest respect for
it, but I think a little clowning removes some of the
secrecy and solemnity......."
This presentation was taped during a "Live FRom
Lincoln Center" broadcast, from Avery Fisher Hall,
Lincoln Center on Sept. 23, 1981.
<<"Mr. Kaye, the most appreciated amatuer conductor in
history.......He knows exactly what he wants and
exactly how to get it.>> New York Times
This was out as a pre-record on Bel Canto label,
number 12704. I have a copy. If anyone's looking for
the prerecord w/Box art, I would think it's probably
out there somewhere too, but probably more along the
classical, rather than popular music releases.
