Nordic Pulse – The Film

https://blog.baltic-sea-philharmonic.eu/wp-content/uploads/6-2.jpg

How do you capture the unique spirit of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi on film? That was the challenge taken up by David Donnelly, director of the hit classical music documentary Maestro. His new feature-length film, Nordic Pulse, which is set for release this year, follows Kristjan and the orchestra on their landmark 2017 tours, as they radically reinvent the concert experience, first through the inspirational ‘Waterworks’, with its spectacular lighting, sound design and projection art in collaboration with Sunbeam Productions, and second with the history-making memorised performances of Stravinsky’s The Firebird during the ‘Baltic Folk’ tour.

The idea of filming musicians who have such a daring vision was immediately compelling for the experienced Donnelly, who says: ‘I have been documenting the classical sphere for nearly a decade, but within minutes of the first rehearsal, I realised this was a completely unique organisation with ambitious goals that went far beyond just making music. What they are doing can’t be defined by a traditional description of an orchestra or genre.’ We’re excited to see the final cut of the film, and can’t wait to share our adventure with a wider international audience.

‘Nordic Pulse’, ‘Midnight Sun’ and ‘Divine Geometry’ are the three major tours for the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi in 2019. Each one promises to be an exhilarating adventure, with new music, new collaborations and a country premiere all part of the excitement. This year will once again see the orchestra performing in some of Europe’s most prestigious concert venues, including Finlandia Hall in Helsinki, the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, the Philharmonie in Berlin and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. We’ll also be returning to some of our favourite festivals – the Merano Music Festival in Italy and the Usedom Music Festival in Germany.

Joining us on our ‘Nordic Pulse’ tour in March is Swiss violinist David Nebel, who made his debut with the Baltic Sea Philharmonic last July, and who’ll be performing concertos by Gediminas Gelgotas and Pēteris Vasks this time. Also returning as a soloist is Norwegian violinist Mari Samuelsen, who’ll be playing no fewer than four pieces with the orchestra on its ‘Midnight Sun’ tour of Germany in June and July. American pianist Simone Dinnerstein makes her debut with us in September, performing Philip Glass’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in ‘Divine Geometry’, a programme exploring the fascinating connections between Baroque music and Minimalism. The ‘Divine Geometry’ concert at the Usedom Music Festival on 21 September will be extra special, as it will include the German premiere of Steve Reich’s 2018 work Music forEnsemble and Orchestra, a piece co-commissioned by the Baltic Sea Philharmonic with the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the San Francisco Symphony, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Last November’s experience of performing the entire ‘Waterworks’ programme from memory in Dubai and Abu Dhabi was such a success that the musicians will be playing another full programme by heart this year, on the ‘Midnight Sun’ tour. Memorised performances have become a trademark of the orchestra, and they’ll be more of them to come in 2019.

The Baltic Sea Philharmonic turns ten years old today. On 4 June 2008 we gave our first concert, in the Latvian capital Riga, on the occasion of the Summit of the Council of the Baltic Sea States. Our second concert came just a few months later, on 21 September, when we opened the Usedom Music Festival.
