Music Monday: Fantasia 2000
The other week, I was able to view a portion of Disney's 38th animated feature, Fantasia 2000. I forgot how beautiful the movie and music is in one Disney film.
My favorite segment is Rhapsody in Blue for several reasons. One, I've always loved this song. Two, it is written by an American composer (Gershwin). Three, this particular segment was directed well-known animator, Eric Goldberg. Goldberg approached famous cartoonist, "Al Hirschfeld about the idea of an animated short set to Gershwin's composition in the style of Hirschfeld's illustrations." Finally, it is just a really great part of the movie set with the complicated animation drawn to a classic song.
Happy (late) Music Monday,
