An Orchestra is reborn!
16 October 2005 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

I'm not really much of a classical music nut, or better yet, I'm hardly a fan of classical music films. I've seen my share, most if not all quite boring. I have no idea what possessed me to see 'Five Days In September', a documentary about the first days of the new musical director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Peter Oundijan. But if I recall, I was willing to give this a try, as it didn't seem too dry. I'm so glad I did, because this film bursts with energy, not just musically, but mainly from Oundijan. Although this was his first time in such a position, he takes it on with such vim and vigor and such passion for the music and the musicians, you can't help but be swept away with him (and of course, wonder if there's really something evil brimming under the surface lol). He takes the orchestra through it's opening night, special recitals and special guests (Yo Yo Ma! Renee Fleming!) and much media and administrative work. He hardly bats an eyebrow doing all of this, which adds to the amazement of this character. The only time Oundijan sweats actually, is on the podium, directing the orchestra, the way it should be.
