Gala Video 7: Helmuth Rilling on 40 Years

  • Aug 4, 2010
The July 3, 2010 gala concert was the high point of the Oregon Bach Festival's 40th anniversary celebrations. A series of videos bridged the thirteen musical numbers and served to cover set changes. Each of the eight videos focused on an aspect of the OBF's history or mission. In this video, Helmuth Rilling offers personal reflections on the Festival's first 40 years of audiences, artists, and achievements, and acknowledges the leadership of Royce Saltzman and John Evans in reaching its stature. The 40th anniversary videos were produced by Pushplay Productions, Eugene. Special thanks to Oregon Public Broadcasting and Alex Richanbach for his interview with Helmuth Rilling, filmed in Nashville in April 2010 and generously underwritten by Betsy and Mark Richanbach.
