Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were considered places of peril, not beauty. How then have mountains come to hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives?
Nowadays, millions are enchanted by the magic of mountains. But mountains are so much more than an escape, or an enemy to be overcome. Their greatest value lies in their power to inspire wonder and awe: to remind us of the limits of our schemes and ambition.
The Australians Jen Peedom and Richard Tognetti, artistic director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, drove this very international collaboration that also involved British writer Robert Macfarlane and American actor Willem Dafoe. There is extraordinary artistry in the finished work, filmed by the worlds leading high altitude cinematographers, with works by Chopin, Grieg, Vivaldi, Beethoven and new works by Tognetti.
