  • The Club Album

    Anne Sophie Mutter

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 1 hr 9 min

    In May 2015 Anne-Sophie Mutter put her noble, impressively named “Lord Dunn-Raven” Stradivarius through more than its usual paces. For a change, rather than standing on stage in one of the world’s renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin. The name of the club was Neue Heimat, or “new home”, and on two evenings in early summer it was jam-packed with hip young people.

  • 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.

  • A Mozart Celebration from Berlin

    Various Artists

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 31 min

    In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
    The soloists—violinist Nikolaj Znaider, soprano Sylvia Schwarts (who’s Spanish, btw), baritone Thomas Quasthoff and double bassist Christof Anacker, are glorious, and are handsomely rewarded with multiple curtain calls. From the overture—“La clemenmza di Tito” through “Symphonie No. 40 in G minor, K.550,” Amadeus’ pieces are masterfully performed.

    Performed in the grandeur of Berlin's foremost opera house, the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, the Mozart Celebration is dedicated to the life's work of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This one-time-only gala concert features exuberant Mozart pieces, performed by some of the world’s leading singers and musicians.

  • Un Ballo in Maschera Act I

    Giuseppe Verdi

    Year: 1989

    Runtime: 52 min

    The outstanding production of Verdi’s Masked Ball at the Salzburg Festivals 1989 and 1990 was Herbert von Karajan’s legacy to the Festival. Supported by a cast of superlative actor-singers in opulent scenery, Sir George Solti agreed to conduct the opera at short notice after Karajan’s unexpected death in 1989. The production had been expected to be a highlight in Karajan’s series of Verdi operas at Salzburg. Karajan’s celebrated ability to unite a cultivated sound with dramatic effects was known to create extraordinary and highly acclaimed opera events. For Un ballo in maschera Karajan planned something unusual: He would not set the opera in colonial Massachusetts, as the censors had forced Verdi to do when he was composing the work, but in Stockholm in the 1790s at the court of King Gustav III of Sweden, as Verdi had originally conceived his work. Together with the film director John Schlesinger and his stage team, Karajan developed a concept that promised theatrical splendour equal to the musical excellence that the conductor and the handpicked cast of singers would surely provide in collaboration with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. But this was not to be: stage rehearsals had already begun for the opening performance of the 1989 festival when Karajan died on 16 July. Therefore it was extraordinarily lucky that a conductor of Sir Georg Solti’s standing, was prepared to undertake the task just a week before the premiere, and with the whole world watching. He and the staging by Hollywood film director John Schlesinger was acclaimed by audience and press alike.

  • Gran Fanfare

    Venezuelan Brass Ensemble thomas Clamor

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 1 hr 15 min

    EuroArts presents a veritable fireworks display of ambitious pieces for brass orchestra recently performed by a colourful and fascinating young ensemble in Berlin’s prestigious Konzerthaus at the Gendarmenmarkt in the heart of the city. The Venezuelan Brass Ensemble is a highly-acclaimed group with nearly 50 young brass and percussion players drawn from the extraordinary Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. The South American country has one of the most admired and amazingly effective music school systems in the world. Almost all children from the age of 2 get free music lessons in their neighbourhood. They learn to play in ensembles as soon as they can master their instruments. This so-called “sistema” enables most of the poor children in Venezuela to have a focus in life apart from being clothed and fed - thus fighting poverty-related problems at the roots. The results are astonishing, the ensemble playing is near perfect and the “sistema” has brought forth internationally successful musicians like the conductor Gustavo Dudamel. The repertoire of the Venezuelan Brass Ensemble is impressively varied and testifies to the high standard of this young ensemble. With their blend of classical and South American repertoire, these 50 youngsters not only bring audiences to their feet, but demonstrate with a scintillating display of brass music a virtuosity and passion that is nothing short of awesome.

As a special guest, Maestro Plácido Domingo conducted almost half of the program and joined Il Volo singing the classic Non ti scordar di me. Although Il Volo were not yet born when The Three Tenors first performed, they grew up listening to them, being fascinated and inspired by their voices and legendary achievements. Now, Il Volo delivers this music to a younger audience so they can experience the same emotions from that long ago magical night.
