  • The Reichsorchester: The Berlin Philharmonic and the Third Reich

    2008. Germany. Directed by Enrique Sánchez Lansch. Lansch—who co-directed Rhythm Is It! about the Berlin Philharmonic in 2003— examines the orchestra's history between 1933, when it ceased being an independent organization financed and administered by its members and became an official creature of the Nazi state, and the end of the war. Under the Third Reich, the orchestra was Goebbels's unassailable ambassador, and its members were exempt from military duty. Lansch excavated some remarkable footage from the period, including performances conducted by Wilhelm Furtwaengler, and was able to interview a few surviving orchestra members. In German; English subtitles. 100 min.
