Posted on November 14, 2017

Gidon Kremer is one of the most exciting artists of our time: the portrait “Bounding bridges and overcoming boundaries” will recall the stages of an unprecedented artistic career and will also focus on Kremer’s current work. This week we were in Moscow, accompanying Gidon Kremer during his week of rehearsals and concerts with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski and retracing his Moscow memories – here are a few impressions!

New documentary “Broken Music” – a second look

Posted on November 8, 2017

The filming for our new documentary „Broken Music“ (WT), directed by Marita Stocker, about the Zakaria Paliashvili Central Music School continues in Tbilisi, Georgia. There was hardly a great Georgian musician who didn’t break into the world of music via the eye of the needle of the Paliashvili.
