Robert Schumann: Symphony No. 1 in B flat major, Op. 38, “Spring”
Spira Mirabilis is an extraordinary new project drawing together some of Europe’s finest young players. It offers a radical new approach to the classical music making. Mostly in their 20s and 30s, they created a dimension to 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, which documents their way of creating a special attitude and breaking down the traditional barriers between performer and audience.
