IMPERFECT HARMONY is a film about musical control, explored through a clash between two maestros: avant-garde rebel and Holland's best-known composer, Louis Andriessen, and chief conductor at Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Mariss Jansons. The occasion is the orchestra's 125th jubilee year concert. With barely a week of rehearsals before the world première of Andriessen's latest composition Mysteriën, they must attempt to reconcile their radically differing sensibilities. Will they overcome their musical differences? At times the outcome is far from certain.
