What does the work of a conductor actually involve? He moves his hands, arms, his whole body, he makes use of his eyes and facial expressions – and he also sings and speaks, but only during rehearsals, of course. Being able to follow a conductor’s interpretation makes for an exciting process, and conveys the basic idea behind a work far more vividly at the same time. “Conductors in Rehearsal” is a BR-KLASSIK series that takes a closer look at the “orchestral workshop”. One can experience first-hand how the conductor’s wishes and instructions are implemented, how his explanations and his temperament change the resulting sound, and what concepts lie behind the interpretation of the work. Thanks to this series – which also now being released on album – the special collaboration between Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra can be documented. The first set presented by BR-KLASSIK documents four rehearsals for concerts in the Munich Philharmonie im Gasteig, taken from different phases of the collaboration between Mariss Jansons’ work with the BRSO.

“Increasingly, Shostakovich’s music is captivating people all over the world and appealing to their deepest emotions. Almost like no other, it bears witness to a traumatic political epoch while remaining a timeless expression of existential human feeling and experience. For me personally”, said conductor Mariss Jansons, who died two years ago, “Shostakovich is one of the most serious and sincere composers of them all”.

From 2003 to 2019, Mariss Jansons was chief conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the Bavarian Radio Chorus. His death on December 1, 2019 marked the end of an era. As a conductor, Mariss Jansons was appreciated by the musicians of his orchestra and chorus like no other, he was loved by his Munich audience, and revered by his fans in international concert halls from Tokyo to New York. To create a place for everyone who wants to remember individual concerts or tours during his time as the principal conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, there is now a timeline on the orchestra’s website. All the concerts since his inaugural one in Munich on October 23, 2003 can be found there. In addition to documentation of programmes and line-ups, selected concerts are accompanied by image galleries, concert videos, backstage material and excerpts from interviews or rehearsals from the archives of BR-KLASSIK and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. These archives are continually being extended, so the timeline is worth visiting again and again. We hope that this “virtual collection of memories” will give Jansons fans all over the world pleasure in browsing and remembering.

Gustav Mahler’s Third Symphony still ranks today as one of the greatest and most powerful creations of the Late Romantic period. The huge symphony, longer and more monumental than the others and containing texts from the collection of poems by Clemens Brentano and Achim von Arnim entitled “Des Knaben Wunderhorn”, was composed over a period of four years from 1892 to 1896, and especially during the summers of 1895 and 1896, which Mahler spent at the Attersee in Austria. Following performances of several individual movements of the symphony, the complete work was premiered on June 9, 1902, at the 38th “Tonkunstler Festival” in Krefeld. Mahler conducted the Stadtische Kapelle Krefeld and Cologne’s Gurzenich Orchestra at this exciting event. It was one of his greatest successes, and his contemporaries were deeply impressed. Between 1902 and 1907, the composer conducted his Third Symphony a further 15 times.

Mariss Jansons has been relatively ill and frail since suffering from a heart attack in 1996 while conducting Puccini’s La Bohème at the Oslo Opera House. He has since suffered from several more heart attacks, forcing him to cut down on his heavy workload. Feeling back on track in the early 2000s, he accepted the position of musical director for Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, one of the best orchestras in Germany.

Mariss Jansons is one of the most influential conductors of our age. In 2012 the charismatic Latvian musician conducted his second New Year Concert in Vienna, an honour that very few conductors have enjoyed. For the present documentary portrait, the film maker Robert Neumüller observed Jansons at work in Amsterdam, Riga, St Petersburg, Vienna and Salzburg. The film shows Jansons working with his various orchestras, including rehearsals for the 2012 New Year Concert, and also explores his private life, resulting in a number of fascinating insights into Jansons’ artistic development and philosophy. By way of a bonus, this release features a complete performance of Mahler’s Second Symphony with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Mariss Jansons.

Music is the Language of Heart and Soul is the only available documentary about Mariss Jansons from his early days till today. Jansons is one of the leading conductors, performing with the most important orchestras in the world. This blu-ray disc includes a performance with Mariss Jansons and Concertgebouw Orchestra of Mahler. “Mariss Jansons is one of the best orchestra builders around.” The New York Times “No conductor has a more extraordinary story to tell than Mariss Jansons.” The Independent
