The Easter Festival with the Berliner Philharmoniker and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko opens with Beethoven’s opera Fidelio. The symphonic impulse that boldly drives Beethoven’s music forward would exert a decisive influence on Wagner. Fidelio has always been most performed and understood in times of transition when something important was involved. With this in mind, Kirill Petrenko is inaugurating his operatic collaboration with the Berliner Philharmoniker in Baden-Baden with Beethoven’s only opera.

On May 1, the Berliner Philharmoniker present, for the 30th time, its annual Europakonzert with which it has, throughout all these last 30 years, at changing European locations of cultural-historical significance, repeatedly commemorated its own foundation on May 1 1882. At the same time the orchestra aspires to support, through these concerts, the exploration of new musical avenues in the politically-transformed Europe of the present day and to connect with one another, through music, people who would otherwise be kept apart by language barriers.

Gustavo Dudamel conductor Berliner Philharmoniker Gustavo Dudamel, the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Waldbühne - what a great success story. In June 2008, at the age of 27, the Venezuelan conductor made his debut as a philharmonic artist on the open-air stage with a Spanish-South American programme. This season he is conducting for the fourth time. And one thing is certain: it will be another highlight in the joint collaboration between Dudamel and the Berliner Philharmoniker.

The Gypsy Influence investigates the tremendous influence of so-called Gypsy music on classical composers from Haydn and Beethoven, to Lehár and Kálmán, Ligeti and Kurtág. In a second narrative, closely connected to the first, the film portrays past and present of Gypsy bands. Main protagonists are the violinists Barnabás Kelemen and Lajos Sárközi Jr., both from musical families with a long tradition. We accompany them to rehearsals and concerts, see them play with friends and family and learn more about their musical ancestry. 2020

Renaud Capuçon, Lahav Shani, and Kian Soltani reunite for Beethoven’s Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano. The composer’s triple concerto is the only concerto Beethoven ever completed for more than one solo instrument and while it was met with little success at its premiere, the instrumental trio is nonetheless great fun and its rare appearance on programs makes it all the more welcome.

In 1784, Mozart premiered his Quintet K. 452 and declared it was the best thing he had ever written. A few years later, while on a concert tour, Beethoven composed his own Quintet in E-flat Major for Piano and Winds drawing from Mozart’s work in both the key and the sequence of single movements. The repertoire is enriched by Erwin Schulhoff’s Divertissement for oboe, clarinet and bassoon. Unlike Mozart and Beethoven, Schulhoff’s career was prematurely terminated by the rise of the Nazi regime in Germany and his works have been rarely noted or performed.

UNIQUE - One artist, One monument, One concert – featuring some of today’s finest musicians performing in timeless historic locations – begins with a spellbinding concert given by violinist Nemanja Radulovic at the Neolithic site of Carnac. The French-Serbian virtuoso with his ensemble Double Sens and pianist Laure Favre-Kahn, plays a range of music, from the Allemande from Bach’s Solo Partita No. 2 to Bloch’s Nigun, against the backdrop of this prehistoric landscape, home to thousands of ancient standing stones.

You will be hearing a unique collection of three different works by Martinu and Dutilleux that share the theme of musical pairs in different forms and treatments. Depending upon the context, “double” can mean “dual”, “multiplied by two”, or even a look-alike; in musical terminology, the word meant “variation” during the Baroque period, and in the title of a composition it also refers to a work’s relationship to the concerto grosso genre. All of these meanings of the word “double” are employed by the two composers for the works being played this evening.

As part of the celebrations marking 100 years since Czech and Slovak independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Czech Philharmonic and their newly-appointed chief conductor and music director Semyon Bychkov perform an all-Czech programme with works by Smetana, Martinu and Dvorák.

When Semyon Bychkov chose the programme for his first subscription concert, he suggested Dvorák’s Seventh Symphony without hesitation, so that from the start of his tenure at the helm of the Czech Philharmonic, he would honour the orchestra’s national tradition. On the other hand, Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia makes a striking contrast: it is a major, groundbreaking work of the twentieth century, and its importance is sometimes compared with Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.

In his debut collaboration with the Czech Philharmonic, Sir Simon Rattle, one of the most respected conductors in the world, performs Antonín Dvorák‘s The Golden Spinning Wheel and Gustav Mahler‘s Das Lied von der Erde. Magdalena Kožená and Simon O‘Neill perform vocal parts in the latter.

Semyon Bychkov conductor Czech Philharmonic Mahler was a superstitous man who – in analogy of Beethoven and Bruckner – believed that a ninth symphony must be a composer’s last. As a result, he gave no ordinal number to his symphonic song-cycle Das Lied von der Erde. With the thread of the ninth symphony gone, he began composing his tenth symphony which should become known as Symphony No. 9. Ironically, it was indeed the last symphony Mahler finished before his passing.

Anna Vinnitskaya piano Marek Janowski conductor Dresdner Philharmonie

Michael Sanderling conductor Dresdner Philharmonie

At the premiere of Prokofiev‘s Second Piano Concerto in 1913, the audience is said to have fled in droves: As so often, conservative minds perceive the new as a provocation. The music echos the mood of the crisis in the years before the First World War: It is a wild, dramatic, adventurous and in the end a tragic work. This builds the bridge to Tchaikovsky‘s Sixth Symphony. While in previous symphonies he made his way “through night to the light“, Tchaikovsky concludes his Pathétique and thus his symphonic oeuvre with an Adagio ending in deepest hopelessness… 2019

The 2018/2019 concert season is Michael Sanderling’s eighth as Principal Conductor of the Dresden Philharmonic. His name is associated with a great musical and technical ambition, concentrated rehearsal work, and concert events of unforgettable intensity. The focus on Dmitri Shostakovich continues, both in concert and the recording project of the Shostakovich symphonies.

Maxime Pascal conductor Le Balcon Pierre Henry was among the pivotal forces behind the development of musique concrète, becoming the first formally educated musician to devote his energies to the electronic medium. His final work Dracula was originally composed with two different tracks: one with Wagner’s music and the second one with horror film soundtracks. The orchestra Le Balcon brings the music in a canon-like merry-go-round to life: one half performs Wagner, the other half plays film soundtracks up until they reverse their roles.

For the first time, the Berliner Philharmoniker‘s new chief conductor Kirill Petrenko is at the helm for the traditional New Year’s Eve concert – which at the same time reveals a new, vibrant facet to Petrenko’s repertoire. The evening’s programme takes us on a musical journey to the USA: with dances from Bernstein’s West Side Story and Gershwin’s An American in Paris. In addition, the concert also features the star soprano Diana Damrau in songs from musicals by Frederick Loewe, Harold Arlen and many more.

When, how and where can one have more pleasant dreams of faraway, mysterious worlds than at the traditional Waldbühne concert of the Berliner Philharmoniker? Ravel’s three-part song cycle Shéhérazade is an irresistible invitation to send your imagination on a journey to magical, distant places under summer skies, performed here by Marianne Crebassa. The young mezzo-soprano is known for her sensitive interpretations of French music.

The Berliner Philharmoniker present their 2019 Europakonzert in the midst of one of the finest art collections in the world: the Musée d’Orsay. Daniel Harding, music director of the Orchestre de Paris, conducts eminent works by Wagner, Berlioz and Debussy which reveal the many links between the musical cultures of Germany and France. The Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel appears as soloist with the Philharmoniker again for the first time in 18 years.

In 2019, 500 years after the construction of one of France‘s most emblematic monuments in 1519, we celebrate the cultural history of Chambord Castle. Les Talens Lyriques under the baton of Christophe Rousset perform a jubilee concert which takes place on the beautiful terraces of the Renaissance castle. Worldwide renowned artists such Véronique Gens, Sophie Karthäuser, and Philipp Mathmann perform music spanning from Renaissance to Romantic and trace back the history of the musical Chambord Castle.

Classical music is often thought of as being austere, ponderous and stern, yet there are examples that were explicitly intended to be the exact opposite. Carnival of the Animals is one of those compositions. Regarded as being plain fun by Saint-Saëns himself, this work is often wrongly underestimated as a piece for children. In addition to the concert, Pappano provides us with deeper insights on each individual movement of the composition, providing not only musical examples, but also a very entertaining introduction.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conductor Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Duncan Ward conductor Orchestre de Paris

Yannick Nézet-Séguin combines his interpretations and concerts with subtleness, energy and strength. His intense musicality and his catchy enthusiasm have made him immensely popular among the best orchestras of the world. In 2018 ended Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s tenure with the Rotterdam Philharmonic for which he stays Honorary Conductor, as he has become Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

Duncan Ward has established himself as one of the most exciting and versatile conductors of his generation. In this superlative concert with the Orchestre de Paris he conducts Schubert, Beethoven and Stravinsky. In addition to Stravinsky’s two folklore – and circus – inspired Suites for Small Orchestra, this concert will also be an opportunity to rediscover Beethoven’s Fourth and Schubert’s Third. These symphonies bear witness to the originality and grace of these two musical giants of early Romanticism.

Founded in 1967 after the dissolution of the Orchestre de la Société des Concerts du Conservatoire, the Orchestre de Paris celebrated its 50th anniversary with a programme packed with wonders in 2017. Apart from beloved works by Berio, Stravinsky and Debussy, the gala concert also saw the premiere of Widmann’s Au cœur de Paris, a new piece written for the orchestra in honour of the occasion. Au cœur de Paris is short and unashamedly cinematic with a nod to Edith Piaf’s signature song La vie en rose.

The Proms, short for “promenade concert” have become a cultural institution in Great Britain since its founding in 1895. They offer the best of classical music in a festive yet informal setting. It is exactly this sentiment and atmosphere that Thomas Hengelbrock and the Orchestre de Paris want to convey with Viennese opera ball melodies in the Philharmonie de Paris.

Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 – also known as the Resurrection Symphony – is a work that exceeds all limits. One of his most popular works during his lifetime, it was Mahler’s first major work that established his lifelong view of the beauty of afterlife and resurrection, while striving to depict nothing less than the entire universe: the lofty and the humble, tradition and avant-garde, pastoral serenity and demonic grotesques, songs and chorales, and death and resurrection, all expressed in music that is correspondingly multifarious and grandiose.

After the triumph of his opera Written on Skin, Benjamin created another stir with his new work Dream of the Song, inspired by Garcia Lorca. Written for countertenor, female chorus and orchestra, the piece was jointly commissioned by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra and Festival d’Automne. Dream of the Song was written specifically for renowned countertenor Bejun Mehta, who was recently named among the 10 greatest countertenors of all time by Sinfini Music.

Ever-present throughout the Baroque period, fairy tale and theatre also regularly featured in Romantic works, notably by Mendelssohn, who contributed to the rehabilitation of Baroque music. Testimony to this is the celebrated Midsummer Night’s Dream, a suite inspired by Shakespeare’s eponymous play. Likewise, in the phantasmagorical overture to Weber’s opera Oberon Elves, fairies and goblins all take centre stage, while the Konzertstück, a novel all about chivalry, interpreted by Russian pianist Alexei Volodin, is full of heroic charisma.

It is hard to believe that Beethoven wrote his 5th Piano Concerto when he was already starting to lose his hearing. Grandiose and intimate, heroic, and powerful, complete with cannon shots, there is so much to hear in this score, penned under Bonaparte’s bombardments. This foundation stone for the Romantic concerto will be accompanied by the Seventh Symphony, a return towards a form closer to Classicism, but still strikingly Dionysian in inspiration and rhythmically elaborate. Two works on a par with the sublime.

Paralleling Beethoven’s Triple concerto in C Major for piano, violin and cello, Insula Orchestra pays tribute to the French composer Louise Farrenc, a talented artist whose unjustly neglected work was nonetheless acclaimed by her contemporaries, musicians and critics alike: La Belgique musicale wrote “A woman may indeed successfully walk the rocky path laid down by Haydn, Mozart or Beethoven”. This performance of her third symphony is an opportunity to rediscover an important work of the Romantic period.

Le Balcon is a chamber orchestra dedicated to the interpretation of music through the amplification of acoustic instruments. The orchestra’s winds quintet invites to a concert that is both cinematographic and poetical. A musical journey will take you from the historical promenade in Paris and the National Library of France to Athnénée Theatre, from Ludwig van Beethoven to Justina Repeckaite, Claude Vivier and Salvatore Sciarrino.

The Dmitri Hvorostovsky Festival pays tribute to one of the greatest Russian baritones of all time and takes place in Krasnoyarsk, the singer‘s hometown. From October 16-26, 2019, the Siberian city became an international hub as musicians from around the globe gathered to celebrate Dmitri Hvorostovsky‘s life and impact. The festival officially opens with a performance of Verdi‘s Messa da Requiem, a musical setting of the Catholic funeral mass.

The music of Verdis Messa combines religious grandeur with operatic drama and passion, and contains equally exquisite writing for both chorus and soloists. It is notable for its emotional depth and variety. This mass is a touchstone work for Muti, who already won two Grammy® Awards for his interpretation. The all-star cast of soloists Vittoria Yeo, Elina Garanca, Francesco Meli, and Ildar Abdrazakov will guarantee a performance of deepest emotionality and musical prowess.

The Polish countertenor Jakub Józef Orlinski is quickly gaining a reputation as a singer of striking vocal beauty and daring stage craft. He has been hailed by critics and audiences alike, prompting the New York Times to write: “Jakub Józef Orlinski combined beauty of tone and an uncommon unity of color and polish across his range.” This concert recording reflects the greatly anticipated release of his debut album, Anima Sacra, a recital of 18th-century rediscovered sacred arias with the baroque ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro.

This performance of Fauré’s Requiem combines the historically informed musicians of Les Siècles performing on historically accurate instruments and the Ensemble Aedes who perform choral works form the last five centuries. A more organ-dominated original version from 1893 was chosen, while the lyrics are based on a Latin text. Pronounced in French, as was customary in France at the time, this gives the vocal part a particularly bright and luminous timbre that uniquely blends with the timbre produced by the Les Siècles instrumentalists to form a convincing unity.

Lutoslawski’s delicate lament serves as prelude to Berlioz’s Requiem, a superlative work requiring an impressive cast of two orchestras and choirs, here under the direction of Pablo Heras-Casado. An event not to be forgotten! The concert was recorded on February 20th, 2019 at the Philharmonie de Paris, a building designed by les Ateliers Jean Nouvel.

Sir John Falstaff is an anarchist who obeys only the reign of his own enjoyment, an egoist who feeds only his power-hunger and his own flesh, and who would prefer to raze the small-minded morals of his contemporaries like the walls of a fortress – by seducing two women at the same time. Needless to say, his plan is thwarted, but those trying to expose him also fail to emerge unruffled from the confusion they unleash around him – which only the audience can keep track of, barely.

The Dmitri Hvorostovsky Festival pays tribute to one of the greatest Russian baritones of all time and takes place in Krasnoyarsk, the singer‘s hometown. Dmitri Hvorostovsky‘s life and impact was celebrated with orchestral performances of two of Rachmaninoff‘s completed operas: The Miserly Knight and Aleko. While both operas are rarely performed, they highlight Rachmaninoff‘s path to finding his own individual style, independent of the traditional number opera or Wagner‘s music-dramas.

Paul Dukas (1865-1935), a composer with extraordinary perfectionism, wrote only one opera: Ariane and Barbe Bleue. Created in 1907 in Paris the opera in three acts or musical tale Ariane and Blue Beard tells the adventure of Ariane, last and sixth wife of Blue Beard. One day, her husband gives her seven keys while formally forbidding her to use one. Ariane, intrigued, discovers that this seventh key opens a door that encloses... his five previous wives. They must be rescued! The heroine then embarks on a rescue operation but runs into some resistance.

The French Baroque opera Hippolyte et Aricie carries its audience away into a realm of wonders with magnificent dance and choir scenes and the greatest possible multitude of musical forms. Philippe Rameau, a French contemporary of Bach and Handel, revolutionized the music of his time with radically novel, sometimes dissonant harmonics; extraordinarily colourful and complex orchestral movements, multifarious rhythms and dramatic intensity.

Monteverdi’s iconic opera articulates Orpheus’ attempts to soothe the keepers of Hades with his voice and his lyre. He is allowed to release his beloved Eurydice from the realm of the dead, on the one condition that he does not turn around to look at her. Leonardo García Alarcón and his Cappella Mediterranea are the fitting performers for this story about life and death, longing and recollection.

Peter Sellars director Roomful of Teeth L‘Instant Donné In the quest for revelation, Kopernikus aspires to complete purification, to a pure state of mind. To achieve this, many situations are experienced: childhood and games, life, love and death, God, stars, colors and light, eternity and the laws of the seraphim, the “stagnation of temporal phenomena,” mystical birds, and the cherubim singing celestial melodies. A transition, as it were, from one form of consciousness to the other.

Sir Simon Rattle conductor Berliner Philharmoniker

Stefan Soltesz musical director Philipp Himmelmann director Münchner Philharmoniker

For the Easter Festival 2017 in Baden-Baden, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker draw their inspiration from Tosca, the most wellknown and also most brilliant of all the Puccini operas. And that is deservedly so, since Tosca is not merely a work of art, but also a gripping suspense-packed story. With Kristine Opolais as Tosca and a spectacular staging by Philipp Himmelmann this production offers a fresh view on this beloved classic.

Playing Mefistofele as a mixture of Latin lover, prankster and demon in Gounod’s Faust opera, Erwin Schrott has already given Festspielhaus audiences a taste of his greatness. Arrigo Boito combines influences of Verdi and Wagner in his musical work: rousing choirs, intricate melodies accompanied by music that is almost cinematic in intent – an intoxicating mix that audiences around the globe find unforgettable. A new discovery that is also a reunion with old friends.

The piece combines a percussive, cinematic score with Hofesh’s bold, exhilarating and tribal choreography.

Victoria tells the astounding life story of Queen Victoria through the eyes of her youngest child and lifelong companion Beatrice. Travelling back in time from Victoria’s death bed, Beatrice relives her memories of her mother as a secluded widow before discovering her anew as she transcribes the Queen’s intimate diaries. Wife, mother, lover, Empress; Victoria presents the various, often conflicting faces of this emblematic monarch, and shows how an act of daughterly devotion became one of history’s most notorious revisions.

Michaël Pallandre artistic director

GöteborgsOperans Danskompani Damien Jalet choreographer

Some men. Some women. No characters and lots of engagement. This profoundly intimate creation, inspired by the eponymous essay by Nancy Huston, Reflets dans un œil d’homme [Reflections in the Eyes of a Man], invites the spectator to share the emotions and sensations of the body in relation to the other. There is the question of desire. Those processes that exist between men and women that many of us forget. That few are willing to admit. A text— and a performance—that questions debauchery, sensuality, pornography, massages, orgasms, love…

Every existence is pulled between a desire to rise and a fear of falling. We fall asleep, we fall in love, contractions pull us out of the maternal cocoon to confront the hard laws of a terrestrial invisible force. In Skid, human relationship to gravity, and the poetic of resistance and abandonment bound to it, sets the dancers in motion. Between verticality and horizontality, Skid is performed on a 34 degrees inclined platform diving right in the orchestra pit. Every movement of this choreographic exploration is created from the limits and new possibilities the slope offers.

7 Visiones del Amen is a masterpiece composed by Olivier Messiaen consisting of seven meanings of the word amen. Composed in 1943, the work is still extraordinarily contemporary and its musical writing in particular stands out in four fundamental ways: a complex and rich timbre, rhythm and harmony, a deep spirituality, and an alluring soundscape.

They move with an old-fashioned juiciness, reminiscent of the Martha Graham Company, but without being old-fashioned. Expect an exciting modern dance performance to the beats of the future.

Jóhannsson is a composer with interesting ideas about technology and music, ideas about the sorts of feelings that might be evoked through juxtaposing electronics with references rich in history like a string quartet and an ancient poem. Based on his father‘s compositions for the IBM 1401, he began to write an elegy that developed into a dance work created in collaboration with choreographer Erna Ómarsdóttir.

Guillaume Gabriel arrangements & costumes Hervé Koubi Company Hervé Koubi choreographer In this mystical, enchanting and hypnotic choreography, Hervé Koubi retraces his own history by relating it to the story of a young boy from a novel by Yasmina Khadra. Together with twelve dancers from Algeria and Burkina Faso, originally street dancers, Koubi has worked on this almost 10 year project to bring it to perfection. Inspired by orientalist paintings and the filigree stone carvings of Islamic architecture the complex entanglements are transferred into modern dance.

AKRAM KHAN‘S GISELLE

BETROFFENHEIT

a MARQUEE PIECE of 21st century dance

Crystal pite & jonathon young from sadler‘s wells

With music by Owen Belton | Alessandro Juliani | Meg Roe | Jim Smith

Akram Khan director, choreographer Ruth Little dramaturge

Bryan Arias | David Raymon | Cindy Salgado | Jermaine Spivey | Tiffany Tregarthen | Jonathon Young dancers

One of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, Giselle is the first full-length ballet choreographed by Akram Khan. The classic story of love, betrayal and redemption has been reimagined in this stunning new version, with sets and costumes by Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip, an ‘ominous, gothic’ (The Observer) adaptation of Adolphe Adam’s original score by composer Vincenzo Lamagna and performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic, dramaturgy from Ruth Little and lighting design from Tony Award-winner Mark Henderson.

Created by Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young, the award-winning Betroffenheit is a boundary-stretching hybrid of theatre and dance that explores the psychological states of trauma, grief and addiction. Combining tap, salsa, spoken word, song and puppetry with Pite‘s emotionally charged choreography, Betroffenheit is a witty and tender-hearted work. Described as raw and riveting, this genre-busting dance-theatre hybrid was the Dance Critics‘ top pick of 2016, and won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production.

RACHMANINOFF REVISITED

SECRET SONG

THE LIFE AND WORKS OF AN OUTSTANDING COMPOSER AND PIANIST

THE RIVETING STORY BEHIND ALBAN BERG‘S LYRIC SUITE

A film by Peter Rosen

A film by Hilan Warshaw

Rachmaninoff was not only a great composer but also an outstanding pianist. It is well known that he was in effect the sole pianist capable of performing his most demanding Third Piano Concerto and his performances and recording of the concerto came to be considered as the definitive ones. The relationship between performance, interpretation, and Rachmaninoff’s own life is addressed in this film by the young pianists we interview. We explore relevant aspects of Rachmaninoff’s life as it relates to thoughts on interpretation, composition, and performance.

Secret Song tells the riveting story of the love affair behind the creation of one of the greatest works of 20th-century music - Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite. Featuring performances by Renée Fleming and the Emerson String Quartet, and blending documentary with re-enactments, the film explores the mysterious connection between life and art.

Classical music is not supposed to be fun, right? And yet, every concert of the Philharmonix is a living, grooving, finger-snapping testament to the contrary. The Philharmonix’ sophisticated sense of humor allows them to move seamlessly from the sublime to the ridiculous and back, taking their audience along for a madcap roller-coaster ride…

Coro Papageno was founded by the late Claudio Abbado in 2011, a choir, where inmates get the chance to sing together. The 120 imprisoned men and women who sing in the Dozza prison choir in Bologna give at least two concerts a year and have already performed at the European Union Music Festival and in the Vatican. Singing together requires people to listen to each other and respect one another. This is one of the key elements of inmate rehabilitation and the concept which inspired Abbado to establish this project.

A film about the violin and its legends

The Soul of Nuevo Tango

A film by Daniel Rosenfeld

In 2018 Yannick Nézet-Séguin ended his tenure with the Rotterdam Philharmonic for which he stayed as Honorary Conductor to become Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera, New York. Yannick has worked with many leading European orchestras and enjoys close collaborations with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Wiener Philharmoniker the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and many notable orchestras and festivals. Learn more about this fascinating young conductor, who seems to be taking the world by storm in this ambitious, witty and intimate portrait.

How can we describe the intimate connection between an instrument and its player? How can a piece of wood become the love of one’s life? Frank Peter Zimmermann’s 1711 Stradivarius Lady Inchiquin, worth 6 million Euros, was locked away for more than two years due to bankruptcy of its lender. This documentary follows the world renowned violinist as he reunites with his beloved instrument. This story is intertwined with another master’s search for perfection: The Antonio Stradivari of the 21st Century, Martin Schleske.

A documentary with extraordinary, previously unpublished material about the “world‘s foremost composer of tango music” – Astor Piazzolla. Being a virtuoso bandoneonist, he revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music, thus single-handedly creating a new and individual musical language. With heterogeneous and rebellious elements he produced a unique music under the drastic pulse of his tango.

Presented by Phylicia Rashad Does tango make one happy or lonely? This is unclear. What is clear is that it is addictive. Singles find people they can embrace. Couples reignite a flare. Tango is a spectacle when mastered, especially as the dancers are exquisitely costumed. Five young dancers dive into the sensual world of Tango, far from its Argentinian homeland – in the Black Forest. All are single. All submit to the erotic spell of the passionate and melancholic dance. All seek to be joined as one with the ideal partner, and to be admired as well

Washington had never seen anything like it: a tidal wave of youth, glamour, promise and high spirits that descended on the capital for the 1961 inauguration of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest president ever elected. Frank Sinatra, who had campaigned tirelessly for Kennedy, enlisted two planeloads of top-rank entertainers to perform at a special inaugural-eve telecast from the Washington Armory. The long lost recordings of this unparalelled event have now finally been re-discovered.
