Movie Info

This extensive profile of one of the world's greatest musical minds captures conductor Claudio Abbado (70 years old at the time of this recording) reflecting on his personal tastes in music, the path that led him to his very successful and celebrated career, and his life apart from being a musician. Interviews with those closest to Claudio, footage of the conductor at performances and in rehearsals with some of his most cherished orchestras, and more previously unavailable material combine to give fans a greater sense of the typically private man as a complex individual and as an artist. Filmmaker Paul Smaczy paints a revealing portrait of Claudio by getting him to open up about his own history, goals, and achievements. Various friends (including Swiss actor Bruno Ganz) and experts in the field of classical music help to create a full picture of the accomplished artist. CLAUDIO ABBADO: HEARING THE SILENCE features pieces by Strauss, Beethoven, Stravinsky, Brahms, and others.
