This powerful new film by documentary filmmaker and Capital Region native, Gerry Herman, provides an intimate portrait of Pulitzer, Oscar, and four time GRAMMY® Award-winning composer John Corigliano, as he tells the story of the creations of his Symphony No. 1. Through this documentary, Corigliano shares his story of love and loss and the creation of his Symphony No. 1 to commemorate “my friends – those I had lost and the one I was losing” to the AIDS epidemic. This film juxtaposes Corigliano’s deeply moving narrative with dramatic performance-footage of the symphony, featuring the Albany Symphony and conductor David Alan Miller.
