DOCUTAH 2015. ‘Bach in Madrid’ by Jose del Rio and Tirabeque Producciones is a movie about Madrid people, worldwide musicians, Spanish political meanness, and the excitement generated by a “sacred” music.

During 8 years, the orchestra and choir of La Capilla Real de Madrid, played the integral of J.S. Bach’s Cantatas and sacred works in Madrid (Spain). It was a huge challenge, never made outside Germany. We’re talking about a work of enormous dimensions: two hundred Cantatas, two Passions, Motets, Masses, and Oratorios.

Jose del Rio was interested in this great musical adventure and he was following the different concerts of The Royal Chapel for more than two years: Baroque instruments, old churches and 600 musicians and singers all around the world.

The documentary shows the emotion of Madrid people (children, students, grannies…) Because concerts were in every neighborhood, also in the humble ones, and people, who were not fond of classical music previously, ended up understanding its beauty.

But in the middle of the process, the last economic crisis started. Jose del Rio filmed these hard times. Madrid City Council decided not to support the project anymore. What could do those who love music and art? See the documentary! It’s full of epic moments!

‘Bach in Madrid’ evidences that, at a time and in a place, musicians were struggling to get a musical milestone in the Spanish musical history.

“Making a film always begins as a mission that seems impossible. Too many obstacles to overcome. Then, little by little, you start and, one by one, you’re solving the obstacles. It’s hard, but it’s only the beginning. Afterwards, the major troubles arrive: the sale and distribution of the film.” Jose del Rio.

In fact, the biggest challenge was to condense nine years of work in the 90 minutes of a film. Tirabeque Producciones shot a lot of material. Over 100 hours: performances, interviews, concerts, etc…

Bach in Madrid by Jose del Rio: 9/8 – 5:20pm – Concert Hall, 9/11 – 6:15pm – Dunford Auditorium.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
