Ten thousand for Beethoven's Ninth

The mega-performance of 'Daiku' by amateur singers in Osaka

In Osaka, Japan 10,000 amateur singers gather together again this year for a brilliant spectacle: The performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, dubbed "Daiku" in Japan. Yet, it’s not about artistic perfection for the Star artistic director and conductor, Yutaka Sado. "All men shall be brothers" - in light of the triple disaster that recently struck Japan, Schiller's "Ode" gains particular significance.
We accompany Sado and three lay-singers in the preparations for the concert. What motivates them to take part? What does Beethoven's music mean to you? And what role, if any, does European classical music play in a society that elegantly combines its own traditions with western culture?

COMING HOME. 75 years Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

Documentary on the anniversary of the extraordinary orchestra

The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra - a cultural icon of Israel and one of the greatest classical ensembles in the world - celebrates its 75th Birthday on December 26th, 2011. The film by János Darvas portrays the orchestra and tells of its moving history, which is both a reflection of the history of Israel and the fate of the Jews in the 20th Century.

With texts from memoirs, with material from radio interviews, home movies and photos from the orchestra’s archives, as well as from private collections, the film will not only tell the story of the orchestra, but draws parallels to the fates of many individuals. Historical footage brings the 75-year history of the orchestra to life.

Interviews with orchestra members from the early years weave through talks with musicians that joined later, and with current orchestra members. Moreover, Zubin Mehta, Daniel Barenboim, Itzhak Perlman and Pinkas Zukerman have their say.
