FILM ESSAY MUSIC

„… zwei Gefühle …“ von Helmut Lachenmann
Musik mit Leonardo for speaker and music ensemble

A film by Uli Aumüller (1998)

In cooperation with Babylon

Fear and desire – it is a variation on Plato’s cave parable and simultaneously an erotic motif that Leonardo da Vinci describes in his short prose fragment that inspired Helmut Lachenmann to compose …Two Feelings... – Music with Leonardo, an intermezzo to his opera The Little Match Girl.
The process of development, how music slowly arises from a fullness of unusual and peculiar noises and figurative sounds, are the topic of Uli Aumüller’s film. He observes the musicians of the Chamber Music Ensemble, Neue Musik Berlin, from the first rehearsal until the public performance in Berlin’s Akademie der Künste. The film not only presents a new look at Lachenmann’s working methods and his depths but, beyond this, at a person who comes to the music, a playful person, filled with the longing for knowledge.
