   0 reviews  -  526 views
    The film of the China Concerts retraces this unique adventure, and, with Jarre's music, illustrates post-Mao China: its sufferings, its beauty, its desire for modernity, its aspiration for liberty. images captured in 1981, at a historical moment when it seemed China was opening itself to the outside world.

    After two years of negotiations, the Government of the People's Republic of China agreed for the first time to officially invite a western contemporary musician to give a series of concerts in Peking and Shangai.

    On October 12th, a team of sixty musicians and technicians left Paris for Peking with 15 tons of stage gear in the plane's hold. A gigantic stage installation, one of the most sophisticated concert happenings yet seen, and the technical, diplomatic and human accomplishment of five triumphant concerts fired the Chinese public with enthusiasm.

    The film was recorded for the following shows Peking: October 21st and 22nd, 1981 & Shangai: October 26th, 27th and 28th, 1981.
