Editorial Reviews

The Scythian Suite is of particular interest in that Gergiev has a personal affinity with this composition. The Scythians lived in the region of the Caucasus where Gergiev has his roots: Ossetia. The ancient myths associated with these illustrious, blood-thirsty, but highly cultured tribal nomads are an important part of the heritage of the Ossets. Intimately filmed and informed throughout by Gergiev's infectious passion for his work, this music-filled documentary captures the fascinating dynamics between the galvanic conductor and his orchestra, as he seeks to convey the spirit of the quintessentially Russian piece to Western musicians. Footage of rehearsals and performance are interwoven with comments from Gergiev and Oleg Prokofiev, the composer's son; archive film material of Prokofiev; and examples of Scythian treasures in the Hermitage Museum, to create a picture of the composer and his music. The film gives a unique insight into the chemistry which exists between composer, conductor and orchestra, and the means by which a masterly performance is achieved.

The idea of Gergiev conducting, and explaining Prokofiev is alluring (hope this word exists). He really does a great job, with interviews and whatever.
But it is far too short.
It does not include the whole piece, so we could have an understanding.
Anyway - good to have - I watched it twice, not sure I am going to watch it more than 3 or 4 times.
Good to have. Good to have.

Fricsay not only has the genius of seeing Beauty and relate it to life, he also has the ability to introduce us to this Beauty, so that we are able to see it as it is, and really enjoy it.
Great.
