Muhai Tang - An Ocean of Music

A 52' & 60' documentary directed in 2010 by Markus Unterfinger

To me, notes are not just notes. I see the tears and hear the joy behind them.
Muhai Tang

This film is a portrait of Chinese conductor Muhai Tang’s extraordinary life. Born in 1949, the founding year of the People’s Republic of China, and raised during the Cultural Revolution, it seemed as if he would have to abandon his dream of a career in music. However, his talent, perseverance and the support of Herbert von Karajan ultimately brought him to the world’s concert halls.

Today, Muhai Tang is a global nomad. A wanderer between the worlds which he unites with music. His personal history, interspersed with historical caesurae, is typical for Chinese of his generation. He gained access to western culture early on through music. Muhai Tang’s life and work are exemplary of a changing China and the enrichment of the world by an artist between East and West.

In a globalized world, cultural interest in others is the key to understanding strangers.
