The documentation offers a fresh approach to the symphonies of Robert Schumann with its protagonists Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and their conductor Paavo Järvi. His exceptional abbility to describe complex musical contents and other correlations in a comprehensible and exciting manner make a significant contribution to a better understanding of the symphonies.
"Schumann at Pier2" comprises the complete Symphony Cycle
of Robert Schumann. This cycle is not a concert recording but is especially performed for the camera which is allowing more technical and creative freedom in visualizing the performances. The venue is a former industrial space on the harbour side in Bremen, the Pier2, which underlines the workshop atmosphere and the eagerness to experiment perfectly.
