EVERYTHING IS GONE?

DOCUMENTARY

Freelance Musicians in the Crisis.

The impact of the Corona Pandemic and the Lockdown in December 2020 on each individual, both economically and psychologically, is extreme — this is not only true for artists. However, the self-employed have been suffering from a kind of cultural lockdown for months already, and again we want to give them a face and a voice.

MUSIC IS LIFE

DOCUMENTARY

Insights and Opinions: Making Music as Freelancers in a Pandemic.

We talked to our musicians about their life during the past months. This documentary was recorded and produced at the end of October, 2020 in Baden-Baden (Festspielhaus) during the last big public concerts before the lockdown-light.

DOCUMENTARY

Stop the Silence!

With their performance of Haydn’s „The Creation“, the Balthasar Neumann Ensembles and Thomas Hengelbrock have put an end to the silence imposed on choral singing by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In Dortmund’s Konzerthaus, we showed that anything is possible, if you never give up!
The documentary gives impressions of some of our circumstances and experiences during this outstanding project, which tested the limits of human possibility.
