Claudio Abbado was Musical Director of the worlds renowned Berlin Philharmonic from 1989-2002. In The House Of Magical Sounds, he takes us back to his childhood home, a house resounding with music, and recounts the journey that led him to study music and, to the realization of his dream to be a musician.
Then we see how he works with the orchestra to bring a musical score to life. With animation and excerpts from live rehearsals and concerts, The House Of Magical Sounds is a film both children and grown-ups will appreciate. As we learn how music speaks to Claudio Abbado, we begin to hear it in a new way ourselves.
