Synopsis

From the filmmaking team that brought us the Academy Award-winning From Mao To Mozart: Isaac Stern in China comes this spirited and humorous documentary about the world-famous Guarneri String Quartet. Filled with the music of Haydn, Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven, this provocative yet enjoyable film joins the Quartet during intimate rehearsals and recording sessions, as well as on tour to Prague, Venice, Baden-Baden and across the United States. An astonishing look into the inner workings of the legendary Quartet, "High Fidelity may be the best film about music and musicians since From Mao To Mozart!" (Vincent Canby, The New York Times).

A film by Alan Miller, Oscar nominated director of Small Wonders and Itzhak Perlman: Fiddling for the Future.
Produced by Murray Lerner, Academy Award-winning producer of From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China.


What the Critics are Saying

"Excellent! Captures not only the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert but also, even more vividly, the music of four distinctive personalities in constantly shifting harmony and dissonance." - Joseph McLellan, Washington Post

"An entrancing and highly entertaining documentary about four gifted musicians who have been making beautiful music together for 25 years."
- Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice Magazine
