  • Its episodic nature poses a narrative challenge that director Josh Aronson's just barely feature-length documentary can't quite surmount. show more

  • Toscanini plays a role in the tale, as does Einstein and a young Zubin Mehta. If director Josh Aronson tries to follow a few too many strands of the story, it's only because there's so many tantalizing ones. show more

  • Orchestra of Exiles will interest anyone who's concerned with European Jewry or classical music in the first half of the 20th century. But it provides mostly the facts of Huberman's legacy and little of the flavor. show more
