Barcode: 5099921306495

Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
Other participants: Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, film director: Bruno Monsaingeon

This absorbing 95-minute documentary about the young French pianist David Fray is directed by Bruno Monsaingeon, the distinguished filmmaker whose previous collaborations with Erato include DVDs with Piotr Anderszewski and Valery Sokolov, and whose past subjects have included David Oistrakh, Sviatoslav Richter, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Yehudi Menuhin and Glenn Gould.

This DVD complements Fray’s second CD release on Erato, a collection of Bach concertos, and it includes live footage from the audio recording sessions of the concertos BWV 1055,1056 et 1058 (the album also includes BWV 1052 in D minor). Issues discussed on screen with Fray, an artist of formidable intellectual energy, include his relationship with the music of Bach and his views on directing an orchestra – here the Bremen-based Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie – from the keyboard.
