Podcast: Revueltas’ revived score for the classic film, ‘Redes’

May 6, 2016

The 1935 classic Mexican film Redes continues our series of early editions, for which the music scores have been restored and recorded in performances by the PostClassical Ensemble. This week’s podcast introduces the world première recording of the complete score by Silvestre Revueltas, which accompanies a restored print of the film, released this month on DVD. Redes represents a towering meeting of minds in terms of direction, cinematography and music. Raymond Bisha sets the film in the context of Mexico’s social revolution and nascent film industry, highlighting the score’s transcendent and epic qualities.
