Sid´s New Glasses

US 2015
D: Raymond Alvin

Sidney Shavelson feels quite comfortable living in his mind and not wanting to see most things. But with his eyesight failing he is forced to get new eye glasses and his universe is turned upside down.
New York´s Lower East Side injects a little Klezmer colour with solo clarinet and soprano saxophone. The instrumentation is band-based, with a string handling that we remember from the studio orchestras of the 60s and 70s, just the time when Sid might have listened to this kind of music.

Excerpts from the score:
