DVD The Vienna Boys' Choir - Silk Songs Along The Road And Time


Currency: SGD


Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Curt Faudon brings to life an intimate and unique view of the Vienna Boy’s Choir, the most famous boys’ choir in the world. 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.
