Concert film trilogy with Robin Ticciati and the DSOA Concert Film by Frederic Wake-Walker and Martin Baer, 2021
Available on the DSO-Website
Classical music with a difference: At Sisyphos techno club, principal conductor Robin Ticciati and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin interpret Ondřej Adámek’s ›Dusty Rusty Hush‹ – a piece that the Berlin-based Czech composed on the occasion of the shutdown of a factory and the DSO is now using to call attention to the present desperate situation of the Berlin club scene.
The motto called ›IN EXILE – OF GODS AND MEN‹ connects ancient mythology, the Renaissance and the present: The Friedrichswerdersche Church, which was re-opened in October for museum exhibitions but had to close again right away due to the pandemic, is a meeting place for the arts with its collection of 19th century sculptures. This is where the film begins with Gabrieli’s ›Canzon in echo duodecimi toni à 10‹. A counterpoint to Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony on gut strings and natural trumpets resounds with Britten’s ›Metamorphoses‹ – from the middle of the forest.
