Nordic Swans with Kristjan Järvi

The ‘Nordic Swans’, performed in Poland in a unique venue and entirely from memory, features swan-inspired music by Arvo Pärt (Swansong), Sibelius (The Swan of Tuonela) and Tchaikovsky (Swan Lake, newly arranged by Kristjan Järvi as a Dramatic Symphony). Another bird shares the spotlight with Kristjan Järvi, as the performance opens with the world premiere of Child of the Nightingale, a new piece written by Kristjan Järvi and Ukrainian musician Ruslan Trochynskyi, from the folk band Svjata Vatra. The nightingale is the national bird of Ukraine and is often invoked in Ukrainian folklore and folksong as a harbinger of spring and a singer of sweet sounds. Trochynskyi joins Kristjan Järvi on stage in Gdańsk to perform their creation with the Baltic Sea Philharmonic.

Cante Jondo, Granada 1922

 

IN PRODUCTION, AVAILABLE FOR COPRODUCTION AND PREBUY

Granada, 1922. Manuel de Falla dreams every night about the ancestral songs that his nanny sang to him as a child… The composer is worried about the disappearance of the authentic flamenco and primitive Andalusian songs to become commercial. In agreement with two other enthusiasts, Federico García Lorca and Miguel Cerón, they decide to devise a rescue plan that will reach the whole world. It is when the first Concurso de Cante Jondo was born.

The idea is supported by artists from all over Europe, but at the same time finds obstacles that sometimes seem insurmountable, such as the lack of funds, the threat of an imminent strike and the ruthless opposition of some very influential local journalists, who disparage the initiative as “Spanishness”. In spite of all this, the contest is held in the Alhambra with artists coming from all over Andalusia. A huge success from the critics and the audience. Falla and his friends can finally be proud, flamenco will be from then on an undisputed cultural heritage.

Connexions

IN PRODUCTION, AVAILABLE FOR COPRODUCTION AND PREBUY

Connexions is a documentary series that highlights the intimate relationship of an electronic music producer with airports, at night. The filming takes place in the terminals of Parisian airports.

A DJ lives at 130 beats per minute, his rhythm is dense, split and solitary at the same time. In the early morning, a trance-like audience cheers him on in a Berlin basement. Four hours by plane and a nap later, Israeli dancers are stomping their feet on a Tel Aviv beach waiting for him. These crowd baths are the submerged face of the iceberg, they make many fans dream. But these intense moments last only a brief moment, an hour or two…
Then the solitude returns at a gallop. Unlike a rock band, DJs travel between concerts alone. How do these DJs or electronic music producers use this time? Are air travels a source of inspiration? Does the excitement of an airport or its architecture make them creative? Is the airport a necessary zone of anonymity? How can we ultimately exploit these huge transit zones? Are they compatible with fatigue and jetlag?
