PROMETHEUS - MUSICAL VARIATIONS ON A MYTH - MARTHA AGERICH; BERLINER PHILHARMONIKER; CLAUDIO ABBADO

$ 4.99 $ 15.99

A film by Christopher Swann

The mythological figure of Prometheus symbolises the creativity of man – and Claudio Abbado took this symbol as the Leitmotif of this very unique concert recording: An exploration of the Prometheus myth through the works of four composers, evocatively visualized by television director Christopher Swann, known for directing 'Leonard Bernstein conducts West Side Story', among others.

The state of the art (at the time of recording) visual effects and special lighting technique were based on an audiovisual concept by Maestro Abbado himself.

The concert was a giant collaboration of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Berliner Singakademie, the Solistenchor Freiburg and the vocal soloists Ingrid Ade-Jeseman and Monika Bair-Ivenz and speakers Ulrike Krumbiegel and Matthias Schadock.
