NEW! A Robert Wyatt Lecture: The Beatles!
May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In only eight years, the Beatles recorded and released 214 different songs while becoming the most significant band in world history. Their musical style, a combination of pop ballads and traditional 1950s rock and roll, was eventually spiced with classical elements, Indian ragas and psychedelic hard rock. Their genesis contributed to the evolution of pop music into an art form, while their aura generously sweetened the counterculture of the 1960s
. Let It Be,
their twelfth and final album
and film, was released only a month after the group's break-up
in 1970. Although their musical life existed for only a decade, The Beatles’ contribution to world music is inestimable.
