Bruchstücke
Eine Annäherung an den Komponisten Friedhelm Döhl

A film by 
Günter Wallbrecht, Hugo Germán Gaido und Michael Dreyer

Catalog number: 21098

This is not a film biography - more an empathetic portrait of the restlessly productive, prolific composer and cultural initiator Friedhelm Döhl, embedded in the history of the German New Music movement over the past decades. Filmmaker Günter Wallbrecht and the two longtime producers, Michael Dreyer and Hugo Germán Gaido let not just companions of the composer from the worlds of music and politics have their say, but, above all, the composer himself.

Intolleranza 1960 was Luigi Nono's first work for the opera stage and is a flaming protest against intolerance and oppression and the violation of human dignity. The year in the title refers to the time of the work's origin. It was commissioned for the 1969 Venice Biennale by its director Mario Labroca. The first performance was conducted by Bruno Maderna on 13 April 1961 at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice. The premiere was disrupted by neo-fascists, who shouted "Viva la polizia" during the torture scene. Nono's opponents accused him of poisoning Italian music.
A co-production with
Radio Bremen.
