Orchestra of Exiles
Film premiere in English original version
22 November 2012
From his first performance in Palestine in 1929, the violinist Bronislaw Huberman worked on his vision of creating a Palestine Symphony Orchestra. After the rise of Hitler, his orchestra offered many Jewish musicians and their families the opportunity to escape the Nazis. Under the baton of Arturo Toscanini, the orchestra of exiles fought on its concert tours with its only weapon against the Nazi regime - music. To this day, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is amongst the world’s greatest orchestras.
