I have played violin for most of my life, having learned under the Suzuki Method. Given my experience, I knew that I would by enjoying The Art Of Violin and I did. I simply loved all the beautiful songs and performances. There are such great master featured, and in some cases interviewed, as David Oistrakh, Itzhak Perlman, Mstislav Rostropovich, Isaac Stern, Georges Enescu, Ida Haendel, Ivry Gitlis, Hilary Hahn, Jascha Heifetz, Yehudi Menuhin, Léonide Kogan, Anja Søgaard Miechels, and more. We are also treated to a segment that discusses two great makers of violins: Guarnerius and Stradivarius. While I think The Art Of Violin is accessible to just about anyone, I think that it's my background in violin that caused me to be especially enthralled by it. But if you haven't played violin before, don't use that as an excuse to not watch the movie. I started playing before I even started school (the Suzuki Method starts very young, mind you) and even I learned some things from this truly spectacular viewing experience! Highly recommended whether you are a master yourself or a newcomer to the art of violin!
