SCHUMANN AT PIER 2

Schumann at Pier2 is not your usual concert film; it shows the 4 Symphonies of Schumann from a new perspective. Filmed at Pier2, a former dockyard in the harbor of Bremen where pop and rock concerts usually take place, the orchestra and the conductor present Schumann's Symphonies to a young audience. Beside the 4 Symphonies, a 98-minutes music film with Paavo Järvi, Schumann at Pier 2, is part of the 3 DVD-set. This documentary explains the whole idea behind the project and it contains footage from rehearsals, comments from Paavo Järvi about the symphonies and the interpretation,
Read more biographical information about R. Schumann and footage of musicians who explain and play key themes.

 Outstanding disc December 23, 2012 By isaac Segal (Cherry Hill, NJ) See All My Reviews "This disc (Blu-Ray) is thoroughly enjoyable on many different levels. The production is imaginative, with bonus material that heightens your understanding and appreciation of both the music and the musicians. The performances are superb, with the lighter weight of a chamber orchestra clarifying the musical lines, while at the same time, casting new light on Schumann's originality. And the venue is pretty cool—although I found myself wondering why the musicians were in formal concert dress in such casual surroundings. All in all, enthusiastically recommended." Report Abuse
