Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, MUSIC FROM THE INSIDE OUT is a cinematic exploration of the magic and mystery of music through the stories, passion, and artistry of the 105 musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra. This groundbreaking film, directed by Oscar-nominee Daniel Anker, is a feast of sound--with jazz, bluegrass, salsa, classical and world music interwoven with the musicians’ personal stories, each of which has at its core the universal struggle for self-expression.

I watched this incredible dvd several times in recent months, including one of the
extras, which is a great radio interview of the filmmaker and the principal first and
second violinists of the Philadelphia Orchestra. 5 stars isn't a high enough rating - this
is more than a must see for (classical) music lovers.

In my experience this is a totally unique production. Interesting, entertaining, intimate,
thought-provoking interviews of professional orchestral musicians are the main focus,
interweaved with many scenes of the musicians in live performances, in rehearsals as an orchestra
or in smaller groups, as well as in other venues, playing chamber music and also non-classical
music - I'll pass on the bluegrass, but the scene with the trombonist playing Latin music was
great! These fine musicians discuss their craft and music itself from many points of view. The
interviews are done sometimes with only one musician, other times in groups. And of course
either in the background, or in the foreground, we are always hearing great classical music.
I felt like on some level I was really getting to know some of the musicians, through the
magic of music, and because of the depth, directness, and honesty of their comments. There
are so many inspiring, insightful comments, so much music packed in to this 90-minute
production, along with interesting travel footage of the orchestra in Europe and Asia.

A few of the comments/scenes I noted:
a) "You can't define great musicianship, but you know when you hear it."
b) We might think that musicians are competitive (and they are sometimes!), and yet on
the dvd we hear otherwise.

This documentary attempts to answer the question "What is music?", through the members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Sometimes the musicians discuss this as a group, or some give individual reflections on the question. There are many varied responses, and there is no absolute answer. It really demonstrates the common bond that music has in it's most basic sense, as some of the musicians demonstrate their affinity for all kinds of music.

Whether you enjoy classical music or not, if you DO enjoy music, this movie is sure to please, and sure to make you smile. Definitely a movie that can be watched over and over.

Format: DVD
I wasn't that thrilled with this. Although I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes aspect of life in a first-class professional orchestra, I didn't get nearly enough of that, and I was not so much interested in the musicians' lives away from the orchestra. By example, a good chunk of time was spent with a horn player talking, not about horn, but about long distance running. Not about how it relates to music making, but just about running. ??

I also think the film needs some organization to the material--even if it were somewhat arbitrary, i.e., following the orchestra for a season, or on a particular tour, or preparing a particular work. The film just begins and ends, with no real new understanding of this life. It seems completely lacking a point of view.

There is the discussion toward the end of the film on "What is music?", which - had we started with that - might have been the organizing principal here, the string that held the beads together. As it is, that discussion is distinctly banal, with answers ranging from "organized sound" on one end, to "the divine" at the other, pretty much undergraduate stuff.

Lastly, I think it's very telling that the most exciting piece of music in the film is NOT the Philadelphia Orchestra - but a street musician playing Vivaldi (amazingly) on an accordion.

I come away from this film realizing to what extent the musician is in the work of art that is being created on the spot, with each performance. Music is a miracle, and live performance of great music really is sublime. And it's all done by people who, like me, enjoy being an audience. Watching these musicians enjoy the superb performance of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" by the accordionist is a high point in this for me. Seeing the DePue brothers play bluegrass, watching the trombonist play with the salsa band, enjoying the violinist with the children at their school, made viewing this film special and important. The segment on the role of the conductor was enlightening. I am grateful to have this.

I saw this movie in the theater when it first came out, and I knew I had to have it. It was so moving and insightful, I walked on air as I headed home. As a musician, it reminded me of why I do what I do. I watch it over and over.

Our daughter alerted us to this movie when it was first released. We absolutely loved it, and everyone who saw it on our recommendation was grateful to have seen it. We have given the DVD as as present several times, with the same reaction. It is the story of musicians in the Philadelphia Orchestra "from the Inside Out." The last person we gave it to recently watched it twice.

This film was produced after a devastating Philadelphia Orchestra strike. It apparently helped to heal the orchestra members, and gave us a memorable film in the process. It entertainingly explores questions like, "What is Music," "How is music related to the other arts," and "What does music contribute to my life." Profound, inciteful, funny, and always entertaining,this is a gem of a movie. I saw it first at the movie theater, and was thrilled to be able to buy it on DVD.
