Film production from 19 to 21 February 2021
On 12 March, a new music film by the DSO will have its premiere. Entitled ‘IM KAMPF MIT DEM TEUFEL’ (Struggle with the devil), director Frederic Wake-Walker and visual artist Ergo Phizmiz bring to expressionistic life the one-act operas ‘Sancta Susanna’ by Paul Hindemith and ‘Slzy Nože’ (The Tears of the Knife) by Bohuslav Martinů, as well as the contemporary orchestral work ‘Sinuous Voices’ by Ondřej Adámek. Through connective collages and animations in combination with footage shot both in the Green Screen Studio and in rbb’s Kleiner Sendesaal in February, an associative visual world is opened up, inspired by the 1920s and congenially presenting music and content alike. The premiere of the film, realized in co-production with EuroArts and in cooperation with Deutschlandfunk Kultur, will take place on the DSO PLAYER at ➔ dso-player.de, where it will remain available for free viewing as video-on-demand for 30 days.
