An extensive portrait about one of the world's leading conductors, who will celebrate his 85. birthday on 29. April 2021
Zubin Mehta is one of the world`s leading conductors. Born and raised in India, he is a brilliant symbol of today`s cross-cultural world and a living proof of the power of music to bridge different cultures and to break social and political barriers.
On the occasion of Zubin Mehta's 80th birthday in 2016, filmmaker Bettina Ehrhardt created a tender homage to this exceptional artist, who was Music Director for Life of the Israel Philharmonic as well as the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Conductor Laureate of the Bavarian State Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic and the Vienna Philharmonic.
The film deals with an artist loved by audiences and musicians alike because he radiates warmth and humanity, in both his music and his life.
