For 25 years, Avron Coleman performed cello with the New York Philharmonic, as well as in numerous important string quartets. Retiring in 1997, this active, talkative, prolific, fascinating man still plays, and recounts tales of music and of his own life in music. The film contains lots of beautiful music by Schubert, Bach, Schumann, Brahms, and others.
This film clearly communicated an interesting story about the life of Avron Coleman and about the dynamics (no pun intended) of how music is made, both individually and collaboratively. How the musician thinks about and feels about the music goes so far beyond what is printed on the page, and this film brought that to life. It showed the depth of the creative process. It was great fun to watch the examples of practice sessions. I enjoyed Mr. Coleman's wit as well.
