Hosted by KBAQ 89.5 FM’s Sterling Beeaff, this award-winning documentary by Michael Stillwater conveys the richness and breadth of the composer’s life and features a range of commentaries from composers and conductors around the world.

This presentation is co-sponsored by Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA).

Included with ticket: special tour of SMoCA at 6:30 pm with Assistant Curator Claire Carter and a post-screening party next door at AZ88 (show your ticket stub for drink specials and a free appetizer).

“…a heartening rarity, a thoroughly intelligent classical-music program that strikes an appropriate balance between words and music.” – Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
