Title The highest level : a music documentary / with Lang Lang ; a BFMI and Sony Classical co-production ; a film by Christian Berger
Published Berlin, Berlin State : C Major Entertainment, 2013


Description 1 online resource (61 min.)
Summary "The Highest Level" explores the Berlin recording session of Lang Lang and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle. The documentary provides insight into processes that are usually veiled: the recording of an album in a league of its own: the preparation of the musicians, the recording in the Philharmonie Berlin, the battle for the perfect sound, the mixing and balancing units during the audio post-production. It is the striking distance to the artists that makes the film an intimate experience. Lang Lang, Sir Simon Rattle, and the musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker, but of course the audio engineers as well are taking the centre stage. The musical pieces to be recorded are Béla Bartók's Piano Concert No. 2 and Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3
