111 cyclists reach famed opera house Teatro Colón to welcome Mauricio Kagel (1931-2008), one of the great composers of the 20th Century, who was born in Argentina, but left the country and settled in Germany in 1957. However, his adventurous music remained an inspiration to a number of forward-thinking Argentinean musicians, and in 2006 he returned to Buenos Aires for a Kagel festival, where he was to direct a major concert by the Buenos Aires Philharmonic, but also worked with a group of young and eager musicians advocated to his repertoire, the Ensamble Süden. Filmmaker Gastón Solnicki was on hand to capture Kagel’s visit on film, and the documentary süden chronicles the composer’s efforts in working directly with the musicians as well as reflecting the situation of modern music in Argentina as such. The documentation surprises for its capacity to captivate even those who are not interested in contemporary music.


Der junge argentinische Filmemacher Gastón Solnicki hat mit seinem ersten langen Film SÜDEN eine Doku über den Maestro hingelegt, die auf wunderbare Art einfängt, was Kagel als Vollblutmusiker und als Menschen ausmachte. Solnicki hat Mauricio Kagel bei einem Besuch in seiner alten Heimat Argentinien begleitet. Jahrzehntelang war er nicht mehr da. Mit jungen argentinischen Musikern, die sich seiner Musik verschrieben haben, tritt er nun, seine Werke vortragend, auf. Der Film zeigt en passant, wie Perfektion auch daher kommen kann. Liebe zum Detail. Die Suche nach dem Klang, der passt. Und jede Menge Humor. Perfektion ja, aber toternst beim Vortragen sein: Nein. Ironie und Selbstironie der Werke Kagels ergeben sich beim bloßen Dranbleiben. Akustisch wie visuell. Der Charme des Dirigenten seiner eigenen Werke ergibt sich aus dem zögernden Nicht-immer-einverstanden-sein und der kindlichen Freude, wenn der richtige Ausdruck gefunden wurde. Ob nun in einer flüchtigen Aktion mit 111 Radfahrern in EINE BRISE. Oder in Vokalwerken, die von den Sängern interpretatorisch einen brecht’schen Gestus abverlangen. Oder in Orchesterwerken, die den Sinn und Unsinn bestimmter Musikstücke hinterfragen. Was ist zum Beispiel ein Marsch? Gastón Solnicki hat mit SÜDEN eine sehr persönliche Homage an Mauricio Kagel entworfen, die einen Einblick in das Schaffen des Allroundtalentes gibt, die auch Neueinsteigern im Bereich Neue Musik ans Herz gelegt werden kann. Humor sprengt nämlich so manche Grenzen.

Silent Wagner - Richard Wagner

Silent Wagner - Richard Wagner

Type: DVD

Directors: Carl Frohlich
Commentary: Tony Palmer

Format: DVD, NTSC, Widescreen

Release Date 17th October 2011

The film ‘The Life and Works of Richard Wagner’, directed by Carl Fröhlich, was first released on 20th November 1913. It was the first ever ‘bio-pic’, and as such about who else but Wagner? What is extraordinary, however, is that it predates D.W.Griffiths and ‘Birth of a Nation’, usually described as the first ‘long’ silent, at a time when the great majority of silents ran for 10 minutes at most. Fröhlich’s film runs for over 80 minutes! The DVD includes commentary from acclaimed director Tony Palmer.
Starring Giuseppe Becce as the composer (he later became a distinguished composer himself for almost 100 talkies), and made when Wagner’s widow Cosima was still omnipotent in Germany, it raises the question for instance of who exactly was Wagner’s father? Was it Ludwig Geyer, the Jew? Fröhlich went on to have a chequered career. A member of the Nazi party from 1933, he was eventually appointed President of the Reichsfilmkammer, the Nazi trade organisation which controlled access to all film activities. At the end of the war he was arrested and, although de-Nazified in 1948, his studio having been badly damaged during the war never resumed production. His films were then confiscated by the Federal Republic! This film has been fully restored from the original print and keeping the authentic tints to ensure it is as close to what Carl Fröhlich would have wanted.

The first ever full-length film biography of the great composer, produced by the multi-award winning director, Tony Palmer.
The Last Ever Interview with Ursula Vaughan Williams

Tony Palmer's film is now complete. Undoubtedly controversial it will also be very important in raising awareness of RVW. Two and a half hours long, it looks at Vaughan Williams' life as a disturbed and frustrated one. Powerful with some harrowing imagery, the film firmly dispels the myth that VW was a cuddly folk song collector and recycler who was affectionately known as "Uncle Ralph". As well as exploring his musical legacy, Palmer also focuses on the human side of VW. His frustration at living in a cosy market town, looking after an invalid wife (which he did devotedly) and the fury as well as the kindness and humanity which were all features of his remarkable character and which in their turn affected his music. The music passages are superbly played and filmed.

New DVD from director Tony Palmer telling the story of the Wagner family.

This brand new DVD from the acclaimed director Tony Palmer tells the controversial story of the Wagner family. It was originally broadcast in September 2009 on ITV1 as one of the final programmes of The South Bank Show and is now being made available in an extended version.
This is a film about a family, a family which has ruled the theatre in Bayreuth in southern Germany for the last 140 years, some say still the greatest theatre in the world. There's no doubt that Richard Wagner who built it was the most influential composer in the whole of the 19th Century. But his family has survived a mixture of lies, deception, fraud and dangerous political alliances. The story of this family is a soap opera that makes Coronation Street look like Noddy-in-Toyland. It’s a family - in many ways the Royal family of Germany - at war with itself.

Few great actors have been so unfairly represented in the public image.

This documentary, made at Richard Burton's widow’s request, is a small celebration of an extraordinary man whose public image may have been seen as much different.
