Founded in 1961, Sapporo Symphony Orchestra is the only professional orchestra based in Hokkaido. Also known as “Sakkyo,” the Orchestra gives around 120 concerts a year. In 2018, Swiss conductor Matthias Bamert was appointed as the new chief conductor of Sakkyo. The program features the rehearsals and the inaugural concert of the new chief conductor, shedding light on how Sakkyo, under the baton of Mr. Bamert, approached An Alpine Symphony (written by Richard Strauss), one of the most challenging masterpieces in classic music that requires a large orchestra comprised of more than 100 musicians. How does Mr. Bamert conduct and orchestrate the music? What are his secrets?
Corporate and organization leaders are said to be loners.
They also seem to be unapproachable.
However, we want to know more about them, about goals they set, and how they tackle difficult decisions.
“The Leader” features a leader each time, and the documentary reveals a side of them never seen in public. Topics are not limited to their confidence and pride. They talk about skills needed in leading an organization, how they maintain their health, their hobbies, what they read, their thoughts on child rearing, nostalgic locations, turning points in their lives, the follies of youth, and things they love with all their heart.
By closely covering the daily lives and activities of the "passionate people," this 25-minute documentary depicts the charm and real self of an athlete, a performer, a musician, a scholar and many other who are active in the front lines.
