Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Christopher Nupen is a South African-born filmmaker based in the United Kingdom specialising in biographical documentaries of musicians. Nupen was born in South Africa to a family of Norwegian descent - his father, E. P. "Buster" Nupen (1902-1977), was a Test cricketer. After studying law at university he moved to Britain to work in banking, then trained as a sound engineer with the BBC. In 1962 he made High Festival In Siena about the summer music school at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena for BBC Radio Three and was subsequently invited by Huw Weldon to make films for the BBC. Using newly-developed silent 16mm film cameras he created a new, intimate style of biographical film beginning with Double Concerto in 1966, featuring the collaboration of Vladimir Ashkenazy and Daniel Barenboim.show more
