The Reichsorchester: The Berlin Philharmonic And The Third Reich (2007)
During the Nazi era, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra was subservient to the dictates of the Reich Ministry for Popular Entertainment and Propaganda. How did these artists--along with conductor Wilhelm Furtwangler--deal with the oppressive reality of the Third Reich? This program explores the ensemble's unique relationships to the state, their audiences, and the matters of individual conscience that challenged them daily. 90 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: German Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish; bonus footage. In German with English subtitles.
