In the eighties, Hungarian Television created succeeding episodes of the lives of fantastic composers in worldwide partnership. The cash register sounded, but what did customers state regarding the episodes that take care of Liszt, Wagner or Bach?

By the eighties, Hungarian Tv had gotten to the point where it was just possible to produce a series that needed considerable monetary investment with foreign involvement. The financial circumstance of a nation drifting right into rising cost of living and dilemma has made it clear that the organization is reliant on co-productions that have actually currently begun in the last years if it is to obtain huge. In a short article on co-productions in the seventies, we went over the advantages of this kind of partnership for MTV, and used the experience acquired during that time to produce even more series. Additionally, it may have appeared that the television had discovered a golden hen with a series of bios of excellent composers.

It'' s a substantial album, rotating quick This very first series regarding the life of Ferenc Liszt truly appeared like a hit, as it is among the adventurous giants of songs history that was likewise Hungarian. By now, it was feasible to obtain wed in Europe, and MTV succeeded: “I suched as the concept, and we would have begun if we had had the stamina to make it occur. We needed to try to find a co-production companion and make a decision which type of land growing to select. This is exactly how the Hungarian Television, the very first network of the German Television, and the Italian Tv, a joint venture of RAI are born, “Miklós Szinetár, supervisor of the series, informed Esti Hírlap in 1981. A short article from Hungary exposes why MTV'' s partnership with the Liszt series was so unique: “If you have actually dealt with Western European partners up until now, the division of labor has been mainly prejudiced. The partner provided the concept, the scriptwriter, the director, and the Hungarian Television the technological and various other|various other and technical “service group”. So typically we were simply connecting, “entering”, and nobody else joined Hungarian television business in their nature.|Typically we were simply connecting, “getting in”, and no one else signed up with Hungarian tv business in their nature. Currently, it simply reversed. Unmatched, previously: a Hungarian movie was made regarding the life of the terrific composer, and this time around the Western Europeans “entered.”

Not just did the team shoot in their original places in the West free of charge – – in Italy, France and the Federal Republic – – but it likewise led to considerable money income: “30-35% of the cash invested by partners is not taken in by the film: this amount it goes directly right into the Hungarian ticket office, “composed Gábor Ocsovai in the previously mentioned Hungary post. There were even foreign actors in the series, although the primary functions were played by Hungarian musicians: young and old Liszt played by Géza D. Hegedűs and Iván Darvas, while various other leading functions included Gabit Marsek, László Sinkó, Terre Venczel and Vera Venczel. customers. The script was composed by music historians Lajos Maróti with the assistance of music historians, who might not comprehend the series on display, and the cinematographer was János Kende, that had formerly tasted the co-production with Mátyás Sándor. “We are dedicated to illuminating Liszt as a personal and public |a public and personal number and artist. In a design that fits the charming tone of Liszt'' s works, “stated Szinetár, who had actually experienced injuries for years because of Sándor Rózsa, so he most likely wished to verify two times. The eight episode series was lastly transmitted as prepared by Hungarian Television at the end of 1982 (which transmitted Liszt'' s works after the 2nd broadcast), and currently the objection appeared to value the cash and power invested.

“At last we have actually produced a genuine, massive, fascinating and top notch|top notch and fascinating series of movies on the art biography, with the assistance and help of a number of tv and countries, and the work of an entire host of Hungarian and foreign artists. This is an amazing work, also strong when faced with oppositions!” Lajos Illés said loudly in his Népszava.”As a supervisor Miklós Szinetár has pleasantly adjusted to this situation. Obviously, his primary issue was to keep the monstre service together in a sophisticated, light-weight and sophisticated|stylish and lightweight way. She did it, “summarized Gabriella Lőcsei, that is frequently stringent in the Hungarian nation, while Film Movie theater Music applauded the performing, the director and the cameraman|the acting, the cameraman and the director|the supervisor, the performing and the cameraman|the director, the cameraman and the acting|the cameraman, the acting and the supervisor|the cameraman, the supervisor and the performing. There were likewise a lot more careful voices: “A substantial album, spinning quick: the life of a musician in photos,” composed Vilmos Faragó in the movie world, while Miklós Benedek in Northern Hungary validated the audiences' ' indifference by stating that “there was less truly remarkable junction, photos – – motion picture series – – cut from the life of a brilliant, with precise care to show numerous crucial elements of Liszt'' s life, producing an exceptional biography photo book rather than a dramatization. “Ferenc Liszt approximated the audience at between 60 and 70 percent, Contrasted to series, there were few, but it was not terrible.

Wagner doesn'' t like

anybody in your home But MTV ' s following huge co-production venture, Wagner, presented a year later on, was a success.|MTV ' s following huge co-production endeavor, Wagner, introduced a year later, was a huge hit. The production, which was partly shot with us, featured real world celebrities and invested weeks in Hungary: starring Richard Burton was likewise accompanied by his other half Elizabeth Taylor, but she likewise starred in Vanessa Redgrave and famous British stars such as Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud and Sir Ralph Richardson. It likewise shows that this was a different type of co-production than when it comes to Ferenc Liszt: Hungary provided shooting places for the manufacturing, and some actors, of whom László Gálffi played a more crucial function (Kornél Gelley) were selected in vain. Senior Liszt, the movie theater did not let it go on collection, and György Solti (Sir Georg Solti) carried out the movie. Lots of likewise operated in the past, but Hungarians did not get involved in innovative administration: the manuscript was composed by Charles Timber, the cinematographer was Vittorio Storaro, who was twice the Oscar champion, and the supervisor was Tony Palmer, who returned to Budapest two years ago Due to his Cohen excursion film, and so he kept in mind shooting when I was still helping the Index, I stated, “I invested twice six weeks right here. Then we were trying to find a location for a little German town, and Solti suggested Hungary: very first Veszprém, where he lived as a kid, and he was right since it ended up being the ideal location.|We were looking for a location for a little German town, and Solti suggested Hungary: very first Veszprém, where he lived as a kid, and he was right since it transformed out to be the best location. Later on we shot in Sopron, Keszthely Castle and the Győr Synagogue, all of them were spectacular, and without Georg I wouldn'' t have actually mosted likely to any one of them. “

As a matter of fact, Burton enjoyed the play Equus at the Bug Movie theater, which he likewise carried out in London, and was totally influenced by: “Ivan Darvas is a much better star than me!|Burton viewed the play Equus at the Insect Movie theater, which he likewise carried out in London, and was totally affected by: “Ivan Darvas is a much better actor than me! To start with, I am shocked that the value of “Italian acting”, the motion system, is stylish right here.|Of all, I am shocked that the significance of “Italian acting”, the motion system, is stylish right here. I never ever utilize it, I nearly do not use it. Darvas'' s every step, his play with the cigarette as he takes control of the kid'' s discomfort at the end of the performance – – a research study,” he stated, but he likewise applauded the function of László Gálffi and Gyula Benkő. “Dazzling actors! Outstanding performance! Better than ours. “

Afterwards, nevertheless, the series, which was celebrated in the British press, was greeted with damaging hatred in your home, with objection and customers on one side. “Indications are coming from the group in turn: a job including beautiful stars that was stated to have actually been worshiped at its best in England, and nobody in the country truly likes it. “I put on'' t like Wagner fans, I put on ' t like clubbing, I put on'' t like Richard Burton ' s followers, I put on'' t like the flamboyant customers of the biography and the TV|the television and the bio series,” Gabriella Lőcsei, who states” he needs the view of the guy of today, but the view of terrific human animals. And with this one, the Wagner motion picture will stay a borrower, “he composed. “Whatever is in location. The verse of the series. The situation is precise. The series is remarkable. The landscapes, the visual impacts, the outfits are interesting. The series is stunning. Only the audience – – we feel – is not included in this all-harmonizing series, “summarized Ferenc Simon Gy. And Sándor Kovács, despite shortage of music inserts, finished his lengthy turmoil in Muzsika publication: “What is truly incomprehensible and stunning to me is that the film-TV at the London premiere of this Wagner film, he was a success in Berks. I believe that this occurred, but I discover it terrible that it might have occurred. Since it'' s real, this motion picture was complete of directorial stuff. (…) This is why the occupation was commemorated. But if, in our day and age, TV/ filmmakers have a stormy interest for self-directed professionalism and trust, a meaningless program of craftsmanship, after that … I eagerly anticipate the next composer motion picture. “

| If, in our day and age, TELEVISION/ filmmakers have a stormy interest for self-directed professionalism and trust, a pointless program of workmanship, then … I look ahead to the following composer motion picture. “

Well, we saw that

The movie critic did not need to wait as well wish for the following: Johann Sebastian Bach, who co-wrote with the GDR tv on the 300th anniversary of the birth of the immortal composer, occurred this time around. Although the Germans had originally prepared a French co-production (and talked about with Isabelle Huppert the function of Bach'' s other half, Anna Magdalena), this did not exercise, leaving MTV, which once again had a supporting function in this partnership, the German Lothar Bellag supervisor, and starring Ulrich Thein in the bio of Luther, who was a fantastic success, while the cinematographer was András Szalai, who was provided a much more famous function in the series by András Kozák, and a number of Hungarian actors were featured in the episode.|The Germans had actually initially prepared a French co-production (and talked about with Isabelle Huppert the function of Bach'' s other half, Anna Magdalena), this did not function out, leaving MTV, which once again had a supporting function in this partnership, the German Lothar Bellag supervisor, and starring Ulrich Thein in the bio of Luther, who was an excellent success, while the cinematographer was András Szalai, who was provided a much more popular function in the series by András Kozák, and a number of Hungarian actors were included in the episode. The long-running, massive manufacturing was likewise partly shot in Hungary, but this was inadequate to draw in Hungarian customers when the four-part series was premiered in the autumn of 1985.

Photo for the cover of the Bach series While there were interesting newspaper articles, such as Lajos Fodor in the Esti Hírlap, which stated the series was “an enduring memorial of poetic-musical-visuals,” they stayed in the minority. Béla Hegyi evaluated in detail in the Review that the series was “rather moderate in regards to the size of the business and its original concepts”, while István Tamás explained it as moderately average in the New Mirror: “It is not magnificent and not especially considerable; and more significantly, according to the research study by Ágnes Szilágyi in the Jel photo, the sight of the Bach series was unsuccessful for us. Afterwards, nobody was amazed that the French-Hungarian-Soviet-Canadian series on Berlioz'' s life went off on Hungarian tv in the springtime of 1986, despite the fact that Liszt was played by Péter Trokán, as was done by a number of Hungarian experts. And in a number of biographical series regarding composers, MTV was no longer included.

Existed a false hope in the tv that the life of the excellent authors would bring Hungarian audiences to the screen? According to Ferenc Simon Gy. No: “It is not true that the large majority of television audiences in Hungary are pre-emptively secured away from anything that would try to start him into the tricks of classical music, the heaviest music.” The success of its academic series in Hungary likewise amazed the American supplier. As a matter of fact, the Italian Verdi series, which premiered in 1987, might be a counterexample, and it was a fantastic success.|The Italian Verdi series, which premiered in 1987, might be a counterexample, and it was a terrific success. One more problem is that Gabriella Lőcsei'' s sight is that it was not focused on composer'' s achievement, but was defined by “novelization, romanticism, lace-peeping right into the ins and outs of privacy, cautious circumvention essential of development”, in addition to a series of other composers. The designers of the series can not be criticized for this, considering that the development of a masterpiece is seldom an amazing film-like process, the majority of which lacks “Heureka!” And strikes the temple. Instead, the issue might have been for any type of excellent author, this kind of novel tv series was most likely not the most suitable tool for depicting their lives. Or, provided the worldwide success of the Wagner or Bach series, they were just not customized to the requirements of Hungarian customers, though it ought to be noted that Wagner'' s British success was not similar to the truly prominent series. Hungarian Tv, incidentally, did not court the Hungarian audiences mainly with these co-productions, and despite the domestic echo, it complied well, a minimum of economically. And this ended up being much more essential in the important eighties.
