Although the European Union Baroque Orchestra has, over the years, been the subject of many short films and documentaries and had many of its concerts recorded for TV and radio, this is the first time EUBO itself has produced, in association with Estonian Record Productions, a film for public distribution Joy and Sorrow Unmasked (ERP6412).
An introductory film opens a window onto the workings of the orchestra and its members on tour. This short presentation follows the orchestra on its way to Echternach in Luxembourg, where EUBO is “orchestra-in-residence”, to give a public performance in the Atrium concert hall at Trifolion as part of its Echter’Barock series. The programme is directed from the harpsichord by EUBO’s Music Director Lars Ulrik Mortensen and features music by Bach, Handel, Ferrandini and Torelli. EUBO is joined by concertmaster Huw Daniel, soprano Maria Keohane and trumpet soloist Sebastian Philpott. The performance was filmed ‘live’ on five cameras by Stefan Zednik’s team (fz films) and recorded for sound by Carl Schuurbiers (Studio 4). The DVD includes an exhilarating performance of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No 3.
