Conductor Movies

On Twitter yesterday, I had a lot of fun making up titles for conductor movies, so I thought I’d share them with you here (in the order I posted them in):

  1. There is a film called The Concert.

    I don’t know if you know it, but the conductor is Russian/Romanian.

    And they go to Paris.

    It has a whole lot of stuff about the daughter being a singer/soprano.

    The interaction between the players is just magic.

    The titles: I think I know most of them.

    1. Yes, I’ve heard of that film, but missed two opportunities to see it in theaters (since I can’t see them all). Thanks for reminding me, as I’ll be sure to try and track it down.
