Music Film

‘Struggle with the Devil’

On 12 March a new music film by the DSO had its premiere. With 'Struggle with the Devil' (Im Kampf mit dem Teufel), 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 collages and animations rich in references and innuendos, in combination with footage shot both in the Green Screen Studio and in the Kleiner Sendesaal of the rbb in February, an associative visual world is opened up that is inspired by the 1920s and congenially presents both music and content.

The film was co-produced with EuroArts and cooperation with Deutschlandfunk Kultur. On the DSO PLAYER it remains available for free as video-on-demand until April 9.
