Scored and conducted by multi-Oscar nommed George Fenton “Earth” marks his second collaboration with the Berlin Philharmonic following 2003’s “Deep Blue,” the first time the orchestra had ever recorded a film score.

Founded in 1882, the orchestra has performed under the baton of greats such as Herbert von Karajan and Simon Rattle. The current conductor is Pamela Rosenberg

The Jesus-Christus-Kirche was a favorite recording venue of von Karajan’s, having been discovered by his predecessor, Wilhelm Furtwaengler, and is famed for its extraordinary acoustics.
