THIS WEEK'S NON-ENDORSED BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT:


thrupiecefilm presents DVD of the Week

[sponsored by Edna's Your Local Community Shop]


SCORE: A Documentary about the Life and Screenwork of the Thrupiece Philharmonic Orchestra [DFI Collection]


A film by Dustin Furniture


DVD Cover of SCORE: "With a running time of just over 2 hours and a relentless focus on a disintegrating partnership, Score is an exercise in fortitude and a test of the patience of even St Wanalfried of Evershot". Barrington Normal, Film Critic.

The busy life of a working orchestra is not always well-understood - especially when its schedule includes three days in the studio recording for a major film whilst rehearsing and preparing for live concerts in several major Dorset venues. The makers of Score had unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the Thrupiece Philharmonic Orchestra and its Principal Conductor Iria Legova during the 2017-2018 season as they undertook the gruelling task of learning and playing the score for the upcoming thrupiecefilm release "The Man with the Moustache". Featuring interviews with all the major players, Maestra Legova and a number of the world's leading film composers, Score is a magnificent fly-on-the-wall, warts-and-all portrait of an orchestra at the height of its considerable powers working with a conductor struggling with her wayward technique and the disciplines of a different kind of music-making.
