A Portrait of Mariss Jansons

Music is the language of the heart and soul A Portrait of Mariss Jansons


The conductor Mariss Jansons presented by the movie director Robert Neumüller.

In his film about the Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons, Robert Neumüller takes the spectator on a fascinating tour of a life devoted to music. Robert Neumüller accompanies Jansons as he prepares for his conductorship of the most famous concert in the world, the New Year's Concert of the Wiener Philharmoniker from the Vienna Musikverein.

While historical footage documents important stations of his early career, long-time companions and artists speak about their work with the conductor. The movie director follows as well the Latvian conductor working with "his" two orchestras, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in Munich and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.
