Storyline

The first part of this Academy Award-winning short consists of a behind-the-scenes look at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra as it prepares to perform Ravel's "Bolero." Individual musicians offer their thoughts as workers set up chairs and music stands; there are also comments by conductor Zubin Mehta and scenes of Mehta and the orchestra rehearsing. The rest of the film features a complete performance of "Bolero" with striking images of the orchestra as the music relentlessly approaches its climax. Written by Eugene Kim <genekim@concentric.net>

Good look into the inner workings of an orchestra
25 April 2001 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

Bolero is a wonderfully haunting work which Maurice Ravel, the composer, actually disliked. Zuben Mehta and the Los Angeles Philharmonic render a glorious performance of the work after giving us a look into the inner workings of the orchestra and how the work is prepared.
