Film Documentary to be aired in Germany
Just received this word from director, Jason Starr. This is the film Catherine Turocy worked on as Production Designer and movement director:
“Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde will have its broadcast premiere next weekend on 3sat. It will be aired at 8:15 on Saturday evening, the 22nd of November. The name of the film is Überall und ewig – Mahlers Das Lied von der Erde. In addition to the usual documentary techniques (interviews, archival material, performance clips) I created short dramatizations for each song aimed to stimulate interest in this unlikely yet mesmerizing combination of a fin de siècle Viennese symphonic style with 8th century Chinese poetry—the two creative worlds at the heart of this symphony. What’s also satisfying is that 3sat will immediately follow the one-hour documentary with a re-broadcast of the complete concert film I directed of Das Lied von der Erde. This was the 2012 inaugural performance for Neeme Järvi as music director of Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. It features baritone Thomas Hampson and tenor Paul Groves. “
