Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first documentary to explore the life of an extraordinary American musician and teacher; a living exemplar of the great violin virtuosos of the past. Rosand describes his life as a child prodigy and his early training and maturation as a musician. He discusses his years performing in Europe and the United States and his quarter-century of teaching violin at The Curtis Institute of Music. Viewers see him giving private instruction, master classes and commenting extensively on bowing technique. Maestro Rosand performs works by Bach, Brahms, Franck, and Joachim. His interpretation of the Bach Chaconne exhibits Rosand’s incomparable mastery of the violin.
