GIOELE MUGLIALDO AND L’ ORCHESTRE PHILHARMONQUE DE MONTECARLO 

“Between his arms and mind, the heart of a conductor acts as mediator”

by Denia Mazzola Gavazzeni

 In Montecarlo, in the beautiful Salle Garnier, for the 2015/16 symphonic season of the glorious Orchestre Philharmonique, an unusual but very successful soirée took place on 11th June last, enthralling the audience of the first Monaco performance of “Metropolis“. This film, an absolute masterpiece by Fritz Lang created in 1927 on the beautiful soundtrack by the German Huppertz, tells of an exceedingly capitalistic world where man is annihilated by machinery. It tells of pure profit and its insensitive logic, of the merciless gap that exists between the world of those who earn their livings and those who get wealthy by making others toil. Huppertz’s music, meaningful at every step of the story, echoes Wagner but also hints at Strauss and Puccini; it is sumptuous: ample phrases, eloquent pauses in perfect sync with the frames. The images, fascinating and sculpted in the magic charm of black and white, take us back to a science of acting that is unique and conveyed through the protagonists’ facial expressivity. In Lang/Huppertz’s story, Love will save the world of profit – otherwise destined to collapse on itself – and all the children kept prisoners in the underground of the Tower of Babel. For this masterpiece, the Orchestre Philarmonique de Montecarlo found in Gioele Muglialdo a knowledgeable, passionate and expert leader, able to wed the image-sound sync with the accents and rubati of the music by skillfully governing the Monaco orchestra. The public’s response was extremely warm, with many curtain calls and a standing ovation, crediting Gioele Muglialdo and the Philharmonique de Montecarlo with the merit of having rediscovered a chef d’œuvre that would otherwise lie abandoned in the archives of the history of filmmaking.
