Notes & Reviews:
"The 1999 film shows Berio rehearsing Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the New Swingle Singers from the podium, as well as discussing the piece in encyclopedic yet poetic terms. He describes Mahler as a "meeting point" between past and future, the "emotional" beginning of modern music. Other voices in the film include Dutch composer Louis Andriessen (a Berio student) and one of the younger conductors closest to Berio's sensibility, Riccardo Chailly. The Berio film shares this DVD with Scheffer's "Mahler: Attrazione d'Amore," an excellent documentary on the warmly eloquent Chailly and the Concertgebouw Orchestra, the ensemble he led so well in the '90s. Although it ranges beyond Mahler, the film focuses on their interpretation of his Fifth Symphony. Berio is among the commentators." -Newark Star-LedgerNotes & Reviews:
