I enjoyed this documentary of Ida Haendel's life and thought others here would also enjoy it.

She's now about 84 years old and, I believe, still performing.
Truly a life dedicated to music. Great personality, heart warming, touching documentary.

She never married saying her family and music were enough. I believe this documentary proves that.

I came back to add something she said.

"You cannot play with inspiration when the conductor is an imbecile." She preceded this by saying 'pick your conductors
carefully.' Love it.
