Around the World in 50 Concerts

In 2013 the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra toured the whole world to celebrate its 125th anniversary: 50 concerts spread over 6 continents. In this film we see how unbridled passion and love for music brings musicians and concert-goers together. Documentary maker Heddy Honigmann lands with the orchestra in Buenos Aires, Soweto and St Petersburg and shows how the ensemble succeeds in gaining the hearts of people from different cultural backgrounds, touching unexpected emotions and helping to overcome the pain of living.
