Notes and Editorial Reviews

Philippe Herreweghe is first and foremost the choir-master who put back all the freshness and purity into Baroque choral music.

He is also the orchestra leader who constantly seeks out new material, from the Romantic to the Contemporary repertoires.

But above all he is the man who, thanks to his incredible energy, kindles a sacred flame whose rays transfix not only the general public but his performers as well.

This film portrait thus attempts to capture all these facets via interviews, concerts, and above all rehearsals which lead us from the Bach Cantatas to Beethoven’s 9th Symphony.
