Vienna Boys' Choir
Not available in the U.S.A.!!!
Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Curt Faudon brings to life
a never before seen, intimate view of the Vienna Boys' Choir,
the most famous boys' choir in the world.
Being a combination between fly-on-the-wall documentary
and cinematic elements this multi-layered feature film takes
us on a journey around the world and even back into time,
experiencing the boys' nomadic lifestyle through their very
own eyes. Interlaced with a tongue-in-cheek filmed collage we
go back in time and witness the imperial choir singing at the
Augsburg Reichstag in 1518 with Albrecht Durer and Martin
Luther present as well as acts in front of Napoleon III of France
and Maria Theresa of Austria and other historical performances
in the choir's 510-year history, brought to life by rich costumes
and state-of-the-art special effects.
The film takes the viewer for a whirlwind spin around the world
and deep into the choir's history, with music to match. Faudon
deftly changes locations, music, sounds, and moods, matching
the choristers' own fast pace of life and continually surprising
the viewer with music or offbeat facts from the choir's rich past
or frank interviews with insights from the boys - straight from
the horse's mouth.
Experience a touching coming-of-age-story, breathtaking musical performances and awe-inspiring international
locations along the Silk Road with tidbits of mystery.
The musical offerings, culled from the choir's long tradition and musicological field research, come in Latin, Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, French, Marathi, Maori, Savo Finnish, Tajik, Urdu, Uyghur, Uzbek, and German. Most of the pieces have not been recorded by the Vienna Boys' Choir before.
