Haendel’s Messiah with Hervé Niquet & Le Concert Spirituel at the Chapelle Royale, Versailles in 4K

While Messiah is Handel’s most famous work, the oratorio was composed rapidly for a premiere in Dublin in 1742.

Messiah met with resounding success from the very beginning: the demand for tickets was such that gentlemen were asked “not to wear their sword” and ladies to come “in dresses without hoops to allow room for a larger audience and thus increase benefits intended for charitable purposes”.
Messiah would soon become Handel landmark composition. Performed 36 times during his lifetime, it soon came to embody all that is majestic and sublime in music. Charles Jennens constructed the libretto dedicated to Christ in three parts: Nativity, Passion and Resurrection, Redemption. The combination of soloist arias and chorales is admirable and Handel’s science of lyric music is deployed in both suave and victorious arias, among the composer’s finest. The memorable chorales have remained in our ear for 250 years…

After the grand alto aria “He was despised”, Reverend Delany stood up in the audience, stirred by emotion and cried out to the singer “Woman, for this may all your sins be forgiven”. In London, King George II was so moved by the Hallelujah that he stood up, followed by the entire audience, and all British audiences ever since. Incomparable and indispensable Messiah…

Forte 2019

Forte is an ensemble cast documentary, directed by David Donnelly (Maestro, 2015), that challenges the popular and perhaps somewhat outdated notions of success in classical music through a fast-paced narrative of three female artists. A young Norwegian violinist on the brink of stardom, a former Russian-born prodigy reinventing her career in the US as she brings music back into schools in underprivileged communities, and a first-generation American from Argentina, whose creative process of composing a film soundtrack is documented and exposed in an unprecedented way. Three different stories, backgrounds, and personalities. One thing in common: strength.

Forte stars Tatiana Berman, Lucía Caruso, and Eldbjørg Hemsing. The film also features appearances from some of the most recognizable names in classical music including Tan Dun, Paavo Järvi and JoAnn Falletta.

Forte is written and directed by David Donnelly, founder of Culture Monster and director of the acclaimed, international hit documentary Maestro. It is produced by David Donnelly and Anastasia Boudanoque, founder of Primavera Consulting. Executive Producer is Roland Göhde of the Göhde Foundation.

Filming Locations Sintra, Portugal; Cincinnati, Ohio; Paris, France; London, England; New York, New York; Rhinecliff, NY; Mendoza, Argentina; Aurdal/Oslo, Norway; Milan, Italy; Berlin, Germany; St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia.

Production Partners: Constella Productions, Culture Monster, Primavera Consulting

Youssoupha live at la Salle Pleyel, Paris in 4K

4 years after the release of his album “Noir D****”, Youssoupha returns with “Polaroïd Expérience”. On the occasion of his French tour, the rapper offered his audience an exceptional concert at the Salle Pleyel in Paris.

Youssoupha’s retrospective in his latest opus “Polaroïd Expérience” is explained by a long and successful career.
From Kinshasa (Congo), he arrives very early in France to continue his schooling. It’s after his university studies at the Sorbonne Nouvelle that he officially launched into rap.
He quickly found himself as the opening act of rappers 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg or Nas. But it is with his solo album Noir D*** (gold disc), that he is revealed to the general public. His particularity is the commitment of his texts and the ease with which he moves from poetry to egotrip.

With his hits “On se connaît” & “Dreamin'” but also many collaborations: IAM, Stromae, Maître Gims, etc. Youssoupha is now one of the major artists on the French rap scene and intends to affirm this with his latest album.
