Concert And Music Documentary with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin
Six master composers, six symphonies, a star conductor and a leading orchestra make Kent Nagano Conducts Classical Masterpieces a first class musical documentary.
Interviews with Kent Nagano and the musicians are combined with footage of the orchestra in rehearsal. Together they offer a fascinating insight into the close collaboration between conductor and players. Animated sequences portray episodes from Buckner's life. At the heart of the film is a technically and visually outstanding concert recording of Buckner's Symphony No. 8 made at the Philharmonic Hall in Berlin.
