Joaquin Rodrigo at 90
An intimate portrait of the remarkable Spanish composer, Rodrigo.
RODRIGO AT 90 is an intimate portrait of the man who - at the time - was Spain's, and perhaps the world's, best known living composer of classical music. Joaquin Rodrigo's compositions are considered among the 20th century's best loved works.
At the age of ninety, he had lived a life filled with as much tragedy as joy, and his belief in demons rivaled his belief in God - but his art maintained an outlook which was as sunny as the land from which it came.
"A reaffirmation of the strength and beauty of the human spirit and the power of music to speak directly to our hearts. The artistry of the film is magnificent, its humanity inspiring."
Prague Jury Citation
"A documentary with the magnetism of drama and a fascinating visual experience...This outstanding video should make a welcome addition to any serious music collection. Recommended for audiences from high school through adult."
