Abstract Flemish conductor Philippe Herreweghe is credited with restoring the freshness and purity of Baroque choral music. His ensembles, which embrace a wide variety of musical periods, have included Collegium Vocale Ghent, La Chapelle Royale, the Orchestre des Champs Elysees, the Jeune Orchestre Atlantique, and RIAS Kammerchor, and his artistry is a model for choral music worldwide. But above all he is the man who, thanks to his incredible energy, kindles a sacred flame that warms audiences and performers alike. This program attempts to capture the many facets of the esteemed maestro through interviews, concert clips, and rehearsal footage. The music of J. S. Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schoenberg, and Pascal Dusapin is featured.
