I've played and taught music all my adult life, and have never seen a finer music documentary than this one. Bravissimo!

An enchanting look inside a great cultural institution allows us to see the real people inside the black suits and dresses. And the street accordian player is just as amazing as the PSO.

Stunning music, but suffers from lack of coherence and no discernible theme. Random pieces of interviews thrown together. Hints at some fascinating topics -- e.g., individual musicians' degree of latitude to deviate from the Stunning music, but suffers from lack of coherence and no discernible theme. Random pieces of interviews thrown together. Hints at some fascinating topics -- e.g., individual musicians' degree of latitude to deviate from the conductor's idea of what a piece should sound like -- but never develops any of them. Divided into three parts, but again no defining structure and the parts are virtually indistinguishable. Unfortunate failure to capitalize on a great opportunity to show the inner workings of a great orchestra. Go see it for the music anyway. Expand
