Directed by Gérald Caillat and Pierre-Martin Juban
Spira Mirabilis is an extraordinary new project drawing together some of Europe’s finest young players.
It offers a radical new approach to classical music. Mostly in their 20s and 30s they study, practice and perform together symphonic repertoire without the guide of a conductor.
This double DVD includes the documentary “La Spira” which portraits the musicians and their intense work sessions and scenes from collective life and documents their way of creating a special attitude and breaking down the traditional barriers between performer and audience.
Schumann’s Symphony No. 1 Spring performed by the musicians of Spira Mirabilis, filmed by Pierre-Martin Juban and Gérald Caillat at the Teatro Luciano Pavarotti in Modena on December 7, 2010
