Nael Marar presents "The Concert" for Marbella Marbella Adelante

Scene of the French film The Concert

This is just magic, beautifully done and very enjoyable to watch The Concert was produced in 2009, Nael.

 It is the best Tchaikovsky Violin concert version I’ve heard. The orchestra out of tune and out of order begins, a chaos, but the concentration of the violinist captures the soul of the orchestra conductor and suddenly, the miracle produces Tchaikovsky being revived amid sounds to give us that ineffable melodic purity that was achieved through the virtuosity of concert.
The scenes were captures by excellent photography that expressed the intimacy of the artists during the show that hardly notice the audience.
The inspiration to chaos, a woman’s confidence overcomes and connects to the public magically, and the artists who observed this.
In the scene, it shows the adventures of the dismissed musicians of the Bolshoi playing in Paris the Tchaikovsky Concert for Violin and Orchestra as if they were the real Bolshoi orchestra..
The story is based on reality,
When  Andrei Filipov and some musicians of the Bolshoi Orchestra were dismissed for political reasons, as he was asked to dismiss the Jewish members of the orchestra and he refused..
Thirty years later Filipov, working as a genitor intercepted a fax from the famous Teatro Chatelet of Paris inviting the Bolshoi orchestra to play there. The Teatro Chatelet were not aware that the orchestra was provisionally suspended.
 Filipov had a great idea: he assembled the dismissed musicians and went with them to play the concert in Paris as if it was the real Bolshoi orchestra.
Well here’s the final piece as a reminder of that amazing performance.
