Alexander Hammid, a filmmaker whose body of work spanned the genesis of the experimental movement in Czechoslovakia, early anti-Nazi documentaries and soaring modern Imax spectacles, died on July 26 at his home in Manhattan. He was 96.

His work in the 1950's and early 60's involved his passion for the arts,  [including] … a collaboration on Gian Carlo Menotti's opera "The Medium" and a documentary series of master classes by the cellist Pablo Casals….

 

"… legend has it, supported by Casals himself, that he was conceived when Brahms began his B-flat Major Quartet, of which Casals owned the original manuscript, and that he was born when Brahms completed its composition."
