Program notes

Life is a Violin for Ruggiero Ricci, who has devoted his entire life to the king of instruments.

With over 500 concerts triumphs behind him, Ruggiero Ricci has played more often, for more people, in more different cities and countries, and over longer period of time than any other artist. His formidable repertoire is easily the largest of any violinist.

In this film we visit him at his home in Palm Springs, in Paris with fellow fiddler Ivry Gitlis, and in Mozart's Salzburg for a Master Class. A personal portrait of a great artist and warm and endearing man.
