Kurt Masur: two Continents, one Maestro
Between the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra

The conductor Kurt Masur guided the musical destiny of two of the oldest and most respected orchestras: the Gewandhausorchester in Leipzig from 1970 until 1997, and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Masur finds himself in highly divergent cultural and social environments. This remarkable juxtaposition serves as the starting point for Allan Miller's portrait of a great musician.
