Synopsis

From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China
This Oscar-winning film chronicles with affection and intelligence the great violinist’s 1979 visit to China. Stern was supposed to attend a rehearsal and give one recital but instead wound up playing a formal concert, touring two cities, and teaching many master classes due to his overwhelming love for music and even more so for the musicians he met, some as young as 10.

Small Wonders
A real-life Mr. Holland's Opus, this Academy Award nominated film is about a dedicated teacher who takes her students on a journey, transforming them from beginning musicians all the way to performing onstage at Carnegie Hall!

High Fidelity: The Adventures of the Guarneri String Quartet
Spirited, often humorous and filled with the music of Hayden, Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven, High Fidelity reveals the inner-workings of the Quartet as it follows them on tour to Prague, Venice and across the United States.

The Turandot Project
Chronicles the extraordinary production of Puccini’s opera, beginning in Florence, Italy, and culminating in a spectacular outdoor performances in Beijing’s ancient Forbidden City. The Oscar-winning director Zhang Yimou directs both productions in collaboration with world-renowned conductor Zubin Mehta.
