Details

“The photos are spectacular. The accompanying text is very dense, associative and personal. A kind of intimate relationship with Thielemann is formed right from the foreword. The intimacy will thrill his fans and convince the sceptics.” Mathias Döpfner, CEO Axel Springer SE

Conducting is – literally – handicraft. How it can, in interaction with the orchestra, create a complex figure of sound has always been the stuff of myths. Christian Thielemann, chief conductor of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, music director of the Bayreuth Festival and artistic director of the Salzburg Easter Festival, is one of the most impressive figures of his profession. At these three major sites of his art, he has allowed the camera to demystify it: through ruthlessly close pictures of his gestures, by avoiding any posturing. In this way the viewer is allowed in to a captivating lesson in conducting. Thielemann somehow embodies the music of Mozart, Verdi and Wagner, opening up an undreamt-of entry into the essence of conducting. Rare glimpses, never seen before!
