|Welcome back in a new season...
Only some months ago
, we all tried to keep looking forward
into a promissing post-corona time,
then had to face a next monster, sitting in the Kremlin and threatening with violence and crime
a peaceful country and it's people -
and meanwhile and us all with a cold winter and many threatening things
But, I trust
that we will not only overcome this winter, but will also experience, that this new
monster loses and clears the way for a POST-PUTIN world, which will inevitably
arise at the horizon
for the time being, I wish to all of us, that - despite inflation and energy-saving
there will be reason to enjoy a lot of live music!

August 6, Buchwald
began his 22/23 season in France by conducting the Octuor
de France for the world premiere
of the chamber music version of his film score to Murnau's legendary "Nosferatu".
On teh occasion of a series of film concerts at the silent film festival Le Giornate of Cinema Muto /Italy, Buchwald
happily could held in his hands the long-awaited
DVD/Bluray of the legendary silent
film "CASANOVA" synchronized with his original music, produced for the Cinémathèque Francaise by the
US company Flicker Alley.
It should also be available on the European market
by the end of the year.
Putin's war has prevented
a film concert of "Casanova" originally planned
for the spring in Moscow - and that will probably remain so for
quite a while ...
It's a pity: director, main actors and almost the entire crew were Russians,
who emigrated to Paris, and a part of the film is set at the court of the
great Catherine in St. Petersburg (see cover photo of the DVD).
In a sense, a largely Russian work of art would have 'come home' with
One of the many human losses, the man in the Kremlin doesn't care about!
In the meantime, Buchwald has launched conducting a mimi
series with films by Chaplin.
Buchwald has also
profited from his forced 'time out' to work upon an arrangenment of Bizet's
to be recorded with Octuor de France,
and a compilation of "Carmen"
to be performed with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Bruxelles.
He's also preparing 2 film concerts with Japanese Silent Movies for "Japanische Fillmtage" presented by the general Consulate
of Japan in Düsseldorf.
with the well known German clarinettist Helmut Eisel, he will accompany
the screening of "Jüdisches Glück"
(after the novel by Shoelm Alejchem) in Zürich and Freiburg.
Finally, in March 23 he will conduct the film orchestra of Freiburger Philharmoniker to peform Shostkovitch' music for teh Russian silent
movie "The new Babylon".
DVD-Democopies of Buchwalds film concerts with
Murnaus "Nosferatu" and
"Faust", the Hollywood
"The Wind" and the Japanese silent movies
"Sumiko" and "Express 300 Miles" are available.
