During this time he also did many chamber music concerts with other well known composers and his friends such as Pau Casals, Mathieu Crickboom, Jacques Thibaud, Emil von Sauer and Camille Saint-Saens.

At age eighteen, I relocated to Paris to study medicine, but became obsessed with music once more and decided to devote my life and time to music. I began reworking those quintets into an opera, at age twenty-five, and completed it a year later; it was subsequently rejected by the opera company in Paris. For several years henceforth, I tried composing and submitting musical works but was mostly unsuccessful until I wrote the Waverly overture. A year later, I conducted my first orchestral concert, which turned out to be the turning point in my musical career. I composed many pieces, including La Damnation de Faust, Les Ballet des ombres, Cleopatre, Neuf melodies irlandaises, and most notably, Symphonie fantastique, Symphonie funèbre et triomphale and the Roman Carnival scene of Benvenuto Cellini.
“…bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are.” The distinction between bullshit and a lie is at times very clear, but it also can be hard to identify. Bullshit is not a lie, and a lie is not bullshit, even though both are considered to be deceitful and insincere. Harry Frankfurt wrote his essay entitled “On Bullshit”, and through reading and analyzing his writing, his position on which is problematic (lying or bullshitting) becomes clear. Near the end of his essay, Frankfurt states, “Thus the production of bullshit is stimulated whenever a person’s obligations or opportunities to speak about some topic are more extensive than his knowledge of the facts that are relevant to that topic” (Frankfurt, On Bullshit, 99). Bullshit is a double-deceit towards a person, because you are hiding the fact that you do not know the information about a topic, and you are spouting out information which you are not 100% sure of, and claiming as if you know enough to hold a conversation.

The classic Hollywood style is defined by the following features: wall-to-wall music, music scored for symphony orchestras, a Post-Romantic style, employed well-known melodies which have a full range of emotions and reflect drama, and used leitmotifs which tend to be full melodies. A specific example of this in Gone with the Wind is evident in the use of the “Tara Theme” which is the Principal theme of the film. It is heard in the opening credits and in the film with the mentioning of Tara which was Scarlet’s
Jim Sheridan uses close-ups to express the emotion on each individuals face to show how everyone is affected by the betrayal of law. Sheridan also composes the scene with the people as the salient image and a strong path towards them, this makes the audience concentrate on what is happening, but the intensity of the scene is also backed up with no sound apart from their voices, this communicates with the audience well as they are engaged and drawn in by the betrayal of law. The audience then comes to a realisation about how the story is based upon the betrayal of law. Betrayal of law is also represented in, In Cold Blood. Truman Capote uses the betrayal of law strongly as the story is based around the murder of the Clutter family.
