$36.00

Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.

A documentary featuring one of the finest Spanish voices of recent times.The film accompanies Montserrat Caballé on a trip through the most significant cities, historical performances and audio recordings of her life. We witness her in conversation, in numerous historic performances and, through the testimonies of friends and fellow musicians, gain a deeper understanding of Montserrat the person and Caballé the artist. Caballé Beyond Music includes an exclusive selection of legendary audiovisual archives, some of them unpublished, which constitute probably the best operatic moments in existence. This film is a complex and passionate portrait of a woman who can only be described as a myth.Yet the objective is to get the truth which lies beyond the myth of this extraordinary performer - her sensitivity and vitality underscore her uncontested place as one of the greatest communicators of the 20th Century.

"Music is magic and it is a privilege to live with it. With this film I wish to share with you the most important moments in my career, which are also the best moments of my life." Montserrat Caballé

*****

“The Spanish diva's career and artistry are presented mainly in her own words, with valuable commentary from colleagues such as Marilyn Horne and Domingo. Plus superb singing by Caballé.”

****

“Speaking to camera with disarming directness and charm, “Montse” comes across not just as an exceptional vocalist, floating fabulously high pianissimos, but also as a professional with feet on the ground and a fun personality.”
