Yesterday, we told you about a new Kickstarter campaign that intends to put 245 pieces by Frédéric Chopin into the public domain. The campaign is being spearheaded by Musopen.org, a non-profit located a few miles up the road from us, in Palo Alto, CA. Operating since 2005 (a year before we took flight), Musopen provides free public domain scores and a library of recordings by classical composers that you’ll want to check out. The library is best accessed via this page where you can browse recordings organized by composer, performer, instrument, form, and time period As you’ll see, Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart — they’re all there. So is Debussy, Ravel and Copland, not to mention another 140+ composers. Music can be streamed online for free.

Unlike any event before it, the Revolution drew its strength from ideology — an ideology that turned on the belief that France had created a radical break with its monarchical past, and would now radically re-organize itself along egalitarian and democratic lines. To drive this message home, the revolutionaries produced thousands of pamphlets and political works of art. What’s more, they created a new revolutionary calendar and a series of revolutionary festivals that helped give cultural expression to the idea that France had entered a new political age. More than a century later, the Russian revolutionaries would use the French blueprint and all cultural tools at their disposal to promote its Marxist ideals.
