From Mao to Mozart

From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China
Director Murray Lerner’s deeply moving Oscar-winning documentary chronicles violin virtuoso Isaac Stem on his historic 1979 month-long tour of China. Stern had accepted the government's invitation to attend a rehearsal and give one recital—but instead wound up playing a formal concert, touring two cities, and instructing some of China’s best young musicians in the techniques and traditions of Western music. (1980; 90 minutes)
