  • Not this World

    Murray Perahia

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 52 min

    In February 1977, Murray Perahia made his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker with Mozart’s C minor piano concerto, conducted by Riccardo Muti. “A first-class soloist was introduced to us, with fantastic musicianship and a highly sensitive touch,” as the press wrote. Many wonderful performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker were to follow. And so it was only logical that the orchestra invited him, as Pianist in Residence, to give a series of joint concerts this current season. In this documentary by Holger Preusse and Claus Wischmann, you can now get to know this exceptional artist better.

    Perahia’s now legendary status means that he is often regarded as someone who is somewhat removed from normal life – which corresponds to the title of the documentary “Not of this world”. But it is only Perahia’s playing, with its otherworldly beauty, that seems to be beyond all earthly limitations. As this film shows, the artist engages in all facets of life as well as his work. In interviews on tour and in his Swiss vacation home, he talks about the works in his repertoire, and how he develops his interpretations. We experience him as an inspirational teacher, at work in the recording studio and, of course, at rehearsals and in concert. Perahia also discusses the injury to his hand, which has repeatedly forced to stop playing for periods of time – a terrible experience for a pianist. But Perahia has even come to terms with this difficult situation and has reached some surprising insights: “What seemed like a curse actually turned into a blessing, because it gave me a lot of time to think about music and to listen to it more. And so I felt I was actually growing as a musician, even though I was not playing.”

  • Mozart: The Great Mass

    Uwe Scholz

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 2 hr 16 min

    Uwe Scholz, ballet director in Leipzig, was hailed as one of the most brilliant choreographic minds of his generation when he died in November 2004 at the early age of 45. His ballet “The Great Mass” is one of the most impressive works of this important neoclassical Choreographer - a requiem, a choreographic revelation and certainly his grand legacy to the Leipzig ballet. The full length Choreography, here recorded at the Leipzig Opera in a performance in June 2005, takes its name from Mozart's famous unfinished Mass in C minor. It absorbs the structure of the liturgy of the mass and adds other works by Mozart as well as passages of Gregorian chant, and sequences from contemporary music by György Kurtág, Thomas Jahn and Arvo Pärt and readings of poems by Paul Celan. Internationally famous soloists from the Leipzig Ballet, among them Kiyoko Kimura, Christoph Böhm and Oksana Kulchytska, take on the leading roles and the staging proves the ensemble to be one of the best ballet companies worldwide.

  • St. Matthew's Passion

    Johann Sebastian Bach

    Year: 1985

    Runtime: 1 hr 33 min

    Johann Sebastian Bach composed the St. John Passion in Cöthen during the winter of 1722/23. The text is drawn from chapters 18 and 19 of the Gospel according to St. John, and includes some excerpts from St. Mathew and additional text from a Passion poem by the Hamburg town councillor Barthold Heinrich Brockes. The composer led the first performance at the Good Friday services on 7 April 1724 at St. Nicholas Church in Leipzig, where he had since become municipal music director and cantor of the Thomasschule. This Passion is heard less often today than the St. Matthew Passion, perhaps because the St. John Passion is in some ways more raw and evokes the anguish of the Passion more painfully than the St. Matthew work. A musician’s musician, an occasional firebrand and a constant paradox – Nikolaus Harnoncourt (born in 1929) is one of the most profound and intriguing conductors of our time. Considered one of the world’s leading specialists of Baroque music, he has long since turned his attention to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and even to Jacques Offenbach and Johann Strauss. He spent many years as a cellist with the Wiener Symphoniker before founding the "Concentus Musicus Wien" with his wife Alice in 1953. It soon became one of the world’s most respected ensembles specializing in the performance of early music on original instruments. In the 1970s, Harnoncourt joined forces with Jean-Pierre Ponnelle to stage a series of Monteverdi operas at the Zurich Opera House. This universally acclaimed cycle contributed to a renaissance of Monteverdi’s music and set standards for early Baroque performance practice. He later began to turn his attention more and more to the music of Mozart, whom he considers "the most romantic of all composers". Harnoncourt did not make his official debut at the Salzburg Festival until 1992. He has been conducting there regularly since then and is a sought-after guest conductor of such reputable ensembles as the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

  • Kremerata

    various artists

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 1 hr 27 min

    Gidon Kremer is, and has always been, one of the most headstrong and original artists in the music business and he was once hailed by Herbert von Karajan as the world’s best violinist. He celebrated his 60th birthday in 2007 and he has always kept himself young musically with his spontaneity and a readiness to take risks. In his artistic development over the past 25 years, Kremer often found himself functioning as a crossover figure as he discovered fresh routes through well-trodden paths in music. It was in this spirit, that his fine young ensemble Kremerata Baltica, which he founded by bringing together young musicians from the Baltic states, presents music by Mahler, Shostakovish, Sibelius, Sallinen, Piazzola, Rota and a cycle called “Sempre Primavera” compiled by himself.

  • Beethoven: Piano Concerto No.1

    Various Artists

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 41 min

    In time for his 65th birthday in 2007, Daniel Barenboim has completed a cycle of Beethoven's
    piano concertos. Recorded live at the prestigious Klavier-Festival Ruhr in May 2007, this
    recording reflects both a very individual and special reading of Beethoven’s music and the
    artist’s life-long dedication to the composer. Daniel Barenboim is one of the most prolific and
    high-profile artists performing on international stages today and Beethoven’s masterpieces
    have been a key part of his repertoire throughout his career, both as conductor and as pianist.
    Beethoven himself was a keyboard virtuoso of almost awesome abilities who created a
    sensation wherever he played. It is no wonder, therefore, that the piano was central to
    Beethoven’s overall output. Daniel Barenboim, artistic personality and former wunderkind,
    long an essential part of the international musical scene both on the conductor’s podium and
    at the piano, is the perfect match for this demanding music. Conducting and playing at the
    same time, Barenboim chose his orchestra of almost two decades, the Staatskapelle Berlin,
    which he has praised warmly for its exceptional, dark and warm sound. With a tradition
    reaching back to 1570, the Staatskapelle Berlin is one of the oldest orchestras in the world.
    Barenboim plays Beethoven brings together two musical masterminds.

Witness accounts from musicians such as Ashkenazy and Rostropovitch, parts of the original recordings of Gould’s concerts in Moscow and Leningrad, as well as a recording that had never been released before of his lecture-recital in Leningrad make this an invaluable documentary revealing an aspect of Glenn Gould’s artistry that few people are aware of.
