Andreas Scholl sings Dowland and Buxtehude

Onstage, backstage at the Schwetzingen Festpiele

Andreas Scholl sings John Dowland's Lute Songs and Dietrich Buxtehude's Jubilate Domino.

Directly after the recital, Scholl and his co-performers discuss the works and their interpretation of them.

"What is the point of a recital, an opera, what is the purpose of music, presented to an audience by performers, communicators? Of course, the purpose of music and art in general, is to enlighten and inspire the human spirit. It is about stimulating – and shaping – both our hearts and our minds." These and other questions Andreas Scholl wants to find out in this portrait.
