JUXTAPOSITIONS is a unique DVD collection focusing on contemporary music. Selected by imaginative film-music director Frank Scheffer, each DVD explores the world of a particular composer. The films in this highly acclaimed collection of documentaries present important works explained by experts or by the composers themselves. The recordings were made in close collaboration with the composers portrayed, their most famous interpreters and enthusiastic film-makers.
The films themselves are pieces of art, beautifully crafted in order to elucidate the composers’ works and lives. The viewer gets to know Pierre Boulez, Elliott Carter, Philipp Glass and Olivier Messiaen, composers who reshaped the contours of our musical landscape in the 20th century. With JUXTAPOSITIONS, the viewer embarks on a voyage of discovery, guided by talented film directors for whom the task of exploring this musical new world is a vocation.
The series comes in luxurious packaging and is an ideal Christmas present for music lovers!
