Schumann at Pier2 is not a usual documentary; it explains the whole idea behind the project and contains footage from rehearsals, comments from Paavo Järvi about the symphonies and the interpretation, biographical information about Robert Schumann as well as musicians demonstrating salient passages and explaining their interpretation.
According to the press and audience their aim was impressively achieved: “Järvi is always animated and alert to the music’s expressive potential: he achieves the best of both worlds.” - Gramophone
Stars of the film are the conductor Paavo Järvi and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and they aim to present these works to a young audience.
