Programs 13 &14: Russian Treasures/Northern Lights: Schwarz,Gerard/All Star Orchestra
One of the most enduringly popular adventure tales, Treasure Island began in 1881 as a serialized adventure entitled ´´The Sea-Cook´´ in the periodical Young Folks. Completed during a stay at Davos, Switzerland, where Stevenson had gone for his health, it was published in 1883 in the form we know today. Set in the 18th century, Treasure Island spins a heady tale of piracy, a mysterious treasure map, and a host of sinister characters charged with diabolical intentions. Seen through the eyes of Jim Hawkins, the cabin boy of the Hispaniola, the action-packed adventure tells of a perilous sea journey across the Spanish Main, a mutiny led by the infamous Long John Silver, and a lethal scramble for buried treasure on an exotic isle.
