Excellent history of conducting styles.
16 October 2001 | by (Loudoun, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie several years ago when a friend loaned it to me. I learned a great deal about the art of conducting, how great music is made and how to better follow a conductor. I would highly recommend this movie to any performer or enthusiast of classical music.
