Berliner Philharmoniker – A Musical Journey in 3D

The great tradition of filming classical concerts is being revived with the film “Berliner Philharmoniker – A Musical Journey in 3D”. Outstanding examples of this fascinating genre in the field of classical music are famous classics such as “Yehudi Menuhin – Concert Magic” and Henri-Georges Clouzot’s “Herbert von Karajan in Rehearsal and Performance”.

Filming of the first cinema film of a concert in 3D was recently completed in Singapore with the Berliner Philharmoniker under Sir Simon Rattle. Innovative 3D-technology makes it possible to open up completely new perspectives, so that every cinema-goer can experience the concert not only from the front row of the stalls but – thanks to the 3D-picture – from a seat in the middle of the orchestra. This lavish co-production between EuroArts Music, Context TV and Shaksfin features a concert from Singapore’s spectacular Esplanade Concert Hall. The film will be released in cinemas globally by Arts Alliance Media this Spring. Further details of screenings will be announced shortly.
The outstanding acoustics and visual brilliance of Singapore’s Esplanade Theatres on the Bay provide an impressive backdrop for the first 3D concert film to focus on classical music. The film takes advantage of the location by interspersing shots of Singapore’s stunning architecture with footage from within the concert hall.
Described by many as the finest orchestra in the world, the Berliner Philharmoniker under their principal conductor Sir Simon Rattle present Mahler’s First Symphony – a unique and breath-taking experience in the concert hall – with Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances.
Sergei Rachmaninov wrote music which, highly emotional in character, conjures up images and narratives in the mind of the listener and spectator, something to which the present film lends visual support. The three movements that make up the Symphonic Dances were headed “Midday”, “Sunset” and “Midnight” by the composer.
The producers, together with the director Michael Beyer and Tomas Erhart, who as cameraman and co-director is responsible for the visualisation of these pieces, have developed a series of miniature stories that translate the music into magnificent 3D scenes. They show the life of the people of Singapore as representative of the multiplicity of people in general. The beauty of Singapore, its cultural variety and the peaceful coexistence of its people play a particular role here.
As many as eight 3D and HD cameras were used in making this film, together with cranes, dollies and tracks. The cameramen came from Germany, the technology and technicians from Tokyo and New York. This large-scale project also received considerable local support in terms of personnel and equipment, with as many as fifty people working on the sets at any one time.
“The Berliner Philharmonker – A Musical Journey in 3D” will be shown in cinemas all over the world in 2011. The film was funded by the Media Board of Berlin-Brandenburg and STB.

Bachfest 2010: András Schiff plays and explains Bach

András Schiff, born in 1953 in Budapest is nowadays one of the most appreciated and distinguished pianists in the world.

Magically, he brings life into pieces, makes them breathing and swinging and keeps up almost forgotten ideals of piano playing. Thus, he is not only a great pianist, but also a professional whose view is not limited on piano music, but who has wide knowledge of the broad field of macro culture. This enables him to play the piano which always makes sense to his own point of view. The 90 minutes concert recording is accompanied with some interviews (approx. 30 min block) with András Schiff, which enriches and completes the great experience of the concert. During the interview, Schiff sits at the Steinway piano and explains the French Suites which J. S. Bach composed during 1722 and 1725 for Cembalo, but also its closeness to Bach’s Goldberg variations and Orchestra suites. He plays a short passage of a Suite, explains it and plays again, but then he interrupts himself once again. This happens without script but with refreshing spontaneity and directness. Completing this part, András Schiff is also filmed at the Thomas Church and Bach Museum where he talks about Bach’s years in Leipzig, his musical and personal development.

Repertoire: Johann Sebastian Bach: French Suite No. 1 - 6, BWV 812-817; Overture in B minor in French style, BWV 831

Performers: András Schiff, piano
Director: János Darvas
Producers: EuroArts Music International
