this gandharva gyle was born and brought up here in berlin but his parents from indonesia i mean while he's a stock there and lives between the two cultures this mix is reflected in his playing and especially in his latest album us see which is an eclectic blend of all sorts of music and sounds be talking to him in a minute but first let's hear his music. let it hit. these kind are we jaya is a musician who doesn't like to be pigeonholed musically or personally the berliner with indonesian roots is an exceptional violinist who finds inspiration outside the world of classical music i collect a charismatic driven for him the music is all that matters. to me make music to touch people to move them and to reach a point where we ourselves are so touched on stage that we can move others it doesn't work any other way. indonesia
is come often visits his parents homeland appearances in commercials and t.v. shows have made him a real pop star here. back in cologne germany wide ranging repertoire is especially focused on the works of johann sebastian bach but he also plays covers from pop stars the main ingredient is always authenticity. i am the jaya began playing the violin when he was just four. he later studied violin up lynn's university of the arts and soon began collaborating with class conductors like.
recording demos for his next album which will incorporate a colorful mix of styles the musicians are experimenting with a piece by italian baroque composer pietro antone. keep your eyes and ears open for a violinist iskhandar jaya a musical maverick. joins me now and he just told me that he was just the last you were just involved i just returned from bali a beautiful. now you're a pop star in that part of the world i can mostly playing classical music and so do they have a different attitude to classical music there is here to relax i feel like indonesia doesn't really have the tradition of having regular classical concerts that's why i enjoy so much playing you know bach beethoven brahms over there
because people are thirsty hungry for it i feel like they're sucking in every note that i play and it's something so special and outstanding for them to listen to pure classical music they don't have the tradition there so do you actually playing a classical piece perhaps in a different way than you might hear. myself like to challenge my audience because i feel like it gives me a special energy when i feel that the audience has hear something odd that they don't hear every day so whenever i'm in indonesia of course i try and reach them on a very emotional level because people over there that's the only way you can take that in touch them over here i like to give a little bit of experimental challenging programs collaborating with all sorts of different artists out of my concert comfort zone and for me this is the most interesting thing to just reach out. and it's not just musical style your image
is very important to you or i get that impression you you go. to a photo shoot you're on the front of cosmopolitan tommy hilfiger. does some of your clothes if you wanted to that's very important well sort of happens i never force it into being it's just people sort of approach me if i want to be on an issue door and i kind of i don't refuse because it's. part of the spirit of our time i believe and why i say no to it because as artists we have to be current we have to be relevant and we have to sort of get a grip of what is what's up today isn't it i think it's very refreshing now bach is the greatest for me. really a lot of professional musicians say this they don't say mozart or beethoven what easy it. has everything it's like we say in german the a and the it's it's has the perfect balance of you know triggering intellect reaching
people's emotions it's not pure emotional music whenever i play to people that don't know the music so much i feel like to try and just look for the emotion in the music but it's so much more and it's the more you listen to it the more you dig into the music the more satisfying it actually becomes because there's infinite layers to this music and every day i discover something new in his music i practice every day one movement and my world is fine again and every day i can also play it in a different way and it never becomes boring this music. let's talk about the new album which has sort of so many styles on and including the album called seed is a piece that i'm not sure which to who i know lived here a billion you told me vote interviews must be going back to london but. i feel this is very personal record here it is and it's. an album that refuses
compartmentalisation as i do as an artist i. i don't know i'm a very wild mix of different races even arabian chinese indonesian because both my parents are mixed so probably all those different genes reflect into my music and this album it is as you said they personal. internet. and it's a very meditative album it's just like a lot of my past my childhood my my. sense because i used to meditate a lot i had a very spiritual life back then so this is all part of my album that was my next question which i think that i already know that it feels to me a very spiritual album that's very important views yeah i mean is that also i mean i know one thing you don't like being called a child prodigy all these great because it was all down to a lot of hard work well i believe a certain amount of intelligence or talent is probably necessary in order to
develop artistry or become of a professional violinist but it's only a very very small percentage and the rest if it's really the mental kind of. asset and the focus that dictation that you put into it and and the amount of hours and work and heat you're doing now and stores and keep bringing classical music to the younger generation as you do it's kind of. i got it right over the side of the right target here are you. so much. now the great the good of the job in film industry converging on berlin for the annual german film awards this weekend and it's not just the all of winning alone as the prize the cold they also come with significant financial rewards especially the winner of best film who gets five hundred thousand euros towards my human next movie is some of the top favorites for the top prize this year deal without you know.

a lot because it really gets to the hearts of the matter and this separation of the living and the dead and that really appealed to me i. am it's a dark film full of mystical illusions and the cruel consequences of global politics. presenting an unshakable faith in people's capacity for good is the film all about me which depicts the childhood of german actor and comedian happy cackling. director catalina link has created a loving portrait of germany's rural region where cackling grew up and her film shows how family and a sense of humor can provide much needed help in times of great distress. for five years and has already won the award for most successful film of the year. was passed on moffat i now know the prize winner already knows that she's getting an
award indeed a lifetime achievement award and that is veteran movie director moderator from trotter she's being germany's top female director for decades and is considered one of the world's leading feminist film actress. director magazine tiffen tata has made a name for herself with stories about strong women the most important works in her forty year career have centered around female. personalities but in twenty eighteen she created a cinematic monument to her directing role model ingmar bergman. when i saw the seventh seal and it was like an explosion for the film she travelled to the locations where bergman shot his films she got to know the swedish director in the late one nine hundred seventy s. every night i was like that i said to him once but ingmar you are my master teacher i started making films because of you and he said very sweetly. is that true is it really and i said yes absolutely. one tata has always been unafraid to be
forthright about her political opinions she even spent a day in prison for causing a disturbance in a court room her films weren't always well received by critics but that only strengthened her resolve the german film awards jury said at a time when women were rarely entrusted with directing the greater fun tata said i can do it as for that alone she deserves fame an honor and she did it. this lifetime achievement award is the latest in a string of prizes of late magazine to from tata believes that female achievement in cinema is finally getting its due. and we couldn't that should go by without mentioning leonardo da vinci who died on may the second five hundred years ago his mona lisa is certainly the world's most famous painting of its influence has been immense over the last haul for millenia i leave you with an amusing look at such influences until next star.
