Program notes

This documentary profiles Maxim Vengerov, following him in his work side by side with Daniel Barenboim and the students of London's Royal Academy, and providing a glimpse at another facet of the famed violin prodigy, off the stage and removed from his work.

The virtuoso Russian-Israeli violinist is a key player on the international stage: winner of numerous international prizes, he performs regularly in some of the world's most prestigious concert halls. The violinist with the "psychopathic" bow, believes that his music can have a big impact on others, a belief that has motivated him to become a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for music.
