Barbara Hannigan – Music Is Music

A01550131

Synopsis

The very first moments of the rehearsals for Crazy Girl Crazy, Barbara Hannigan’s first album as both singer and conductor, were filmed by Mathieu Amalric, the celebrated French actor and director who won the Best Director Award at the Cannes Festival in 2010 for his film On Tour (Tournée) as well as a special award created at Cannes in 2017, the ‘prize for the poetry of cinema’, for his latest film. Mathieu Amalric first met the soprano when they worked together on C’est presque au bout du monde, a renowned film for the “3èmeScène” programme of the Opéra de Paris. For their on-camera reunion, Amalric plunges into the heart of Barbara and the orchestra, with an intimate look at their journey. Entitled Music is Music, the film was selected for the 2017 New York Film Festival.
