Tusarnituuq! Nagano in the Land of the Inuit
Released August 27 2009
A film by Félix Lajeunesse
Produced by Katarina Soukup
In September 2008 Canada’s most prestigious orchestra, the acclaimed Orchestre symphonique de Montreal (OSM), embarked on its first ever tour of the Canadian Arctic. Lead by internationally celebrated conductor Kent Nagano, the OSM's program featured a concert of music from the classical repertoire, including Stravinksy’s Histoire du soldat narrated in Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit people, and a new work inspired by Inuit throatsinging from Canadian composer Alexina Louie. Offering viewers intimate access to Maestro Nagano, the artists, and the remote Inuit communities they visit, this stunning documentary captures an extraordinary meeting of two worlds through music.
