    Has anyone seen (or have info about) the documentary film Maestro? This apparently focuses on the conductor Paavo Järvi and several performers, and the joys and tribulations of the classical music world. I have found the following YouTube trailer, but nothing else about where the full...
  2. Non-Classical Music
    Would like to know thoughts on seeing Get Back the new 9 hour series of live Beatles footage in an about 2 week intense session to come up with 14 new songs. This is a level of the Beatles we have NEVER SEEN before. I was surprised at how normal acting they were. Having spent much of my...
  3. Identifying Classical Music
    I will appreciate any help identifying this baroque orchestral work that appeared in the third episode of "Baroque! From St. Peter's To St. Paul's" (the episode dedicated to England). It sounds like end of Renaissance beginning of Baroque. It starts at 36:27 and then again at 37:30 Any hint...

    I am a fan of French pianist Cécile Ousset and for a long time I have been looking for video footage of her. I found her playing Prokofiev's 3rd piano concerto on YouTube, but that's it. Along the way, I learned that the BBC made a documentary about her for their Omnibus series and released it...

    Samuel Barber was born today, March 9, in 1910. I've created a short 3-minute video that offers comments about his music by William Schuman, Thomas Hampson, biographer Barbara Heyman, Leonard Slatkin and Leonard Bernstein (in that order). Thought you'd perhaps enjoying having a look. I'd...

    I am hoping to find the name of this short piece of music. It is probably Russian, but I can't say for sure. (It was found in the context of a documentary about Vladimir Putin, which by the way, I recommend watching.) In case this attachment doesn't work, the music can be found in the...

    I recently watched the documentary "Music makes a City", the story of the Louisville Orchestra and it's first conductor Robert Whitney. We are now accustomed to orchestras having their own record label but the Louisville Orchestra almost from its inception not only had its own label but also a...
  15. Conductors & Conducting
    Quite a fun and interesting documentary on conductors from 1993. Maestros voicing their opinions here include Maazel, Solti, Salonen, Mehta, Slatkin. Orchestra players and critics also weigh in. Some pretty frank statements about incompetence, charlatans, and the dirty classical music business...

    Finally someone alerted me that I had posted the wrong link to the Nilsson documentary. So sorry for the oversight:. I corrected it in the original posting but many of you had checked it out before I caught the mistake. It is a very wonderful documentary.
  17. Opera
    In Swedish, English and German, you get a real feel for the day to day life of the divine Nilsson. Some highlights are an extremely long session of the crowd going crazy after Visi D'arte and her masterful acknowledgement of the applause within character, her vocalizing up to high D before...

    I need help identifying some music from a very old BBC documentary on the development of Cavalry. I've been trying to find out what these pieces are since 1985 :eek:. I'm not sure if they're well known works or composed just for this series. I would be eternally grateful if I could find that...
