MAHLER - BERIO
Film 1 : Attrazione d’Amore is a touching illustration of the unique relation that has developed between the Conductor Riccardo Chailly and his famous Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Juxtaposing rehear...展开sals and performances of works by Mahler, Mozart, Debussy, Stravinsky and Varese as well as Puccini’s Tosca, Frank Scheffer paints a fascinating portrait of mutual love between a Conductor and an orchestra based on the magical attraction of music. The film also features interviews of Luciano Berio and Riccardo Chailly himself.
Film 2 : Voyage to Cythera. In 1968 Luciano Berio, composer and pioneer of electroacoustic music, created Sinfonia, a memorable orchestral piece and harmonic journey through references to composers such as Stravinsky, Boulez, Schönberg, Stockhausen and most of all, Mahler. Just as Sinfonia uses the image of a river to connect its various elements, Voyage to Cythera navigates through wonderful musical quotes made of performances conducted by Berio, rehearsals, archival documents and interviews featuring Riccardo Chailly and Louis Andriessen.
