The Gulbenkian Orchestra celebrates in 2012 its 50th anniversary. This documentary aims to celebrate the anniversary showing the day-to-day backstage musical group, with a clear focus on musicians, soloists and conductors, but also paying homage to all other employees who never step on stage or receive applause.
Through the rehearsals, concerts, moments of relaxation, following some musicians in their lives outside of the orchestra, "Interval" will look like as an interesting document on human relationships and valuable witness for the future.
An orchestra as a result of many lives crossed. Soft emotions in the routine of gentle gestures known from decades, strong emotions in the unpredictable variable of another concert with new soloists and guest conductors.
The moments alone, leisure, the individual. The daily encounters for tuning instruments, choreographing gestures, erect cathedrals. The consonance, dissonance. Cycles, routines, passion, creativity and art.
