Celebrate music with music! Bettina Ehrhardt’s film follows conductor Kent Nagano and the Orchestra symphonique de Montréal in its 75th season with an exceptional display of music and concert tours: From the Inuit in Northern Quebec and a concert for throatsingers and orchestra to Paris with Gustav Mahler’s Lied von der Erde, from the great symphonic tradition of Bruckner and Beethoven to one of the masterpieces of the 20th century, Olivier Messiaen’s Opera Saint François d’Assise. Kent Nagano and his musicians share an artistic vision born out of the cultural diversity of Montreal, with its many cultures, languages and traditions. Kent Nagano’s talent for detecting poetry and music in every day urban life leads to surprising concerts commissioned by OSM like the one featuring a radio host as soloist. 15.000 people attend a concert of the OSM in the most popular Hockey stadium Centre Bell of Montreal. Kent Nagano and his orchestra have captivated the city.
