Notes & Reviews:

Beautifully crafted biography of the legendary Hungarian-born conductor whose tragically early death prevented him from earning the celebrity of the likes of Karajan or Bernstein. This film portrays the maestro conducting rehearsals and concert performances of works by Kodaly, Smetana, Dukas and Mozart. Tamas Vasary, Kurt Masur, Yehudi Menuhin and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, all of whom worked closely with him, talk about the man and his remarkable artistry. From archive footage, we discover the marvelous technique of this passionate and elegant conductor and the imaginative language he used to bring music to life during his rehearsals with various orchestras.
