1931, concert film shot at Tobis Klangfilm in Epinay-sur-Seine
The Concertgebouw Orchestra plays Carl Maria von Weber's Oberon Overture, the Adagietto from Arlésienne Suite No. 1 by Georges Bizet and the Hungarian March from Hector Berlioz's La damnation de Faust. For this recording the orchestra traveled to Epinay-sur-Seine, France. At the Tobis Klangfilm studio the Main Hall of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw was recreated, including the famous staircase. Thus the orchestra played in a more or less familiar setting with plenty of space for cameras, microphones and proper lighting.
