A reporter sent to Venice to interview world-renowned violinist Paolo Levi is told she can ask him anything about his life and career, but on no account must she ask him the Mozart question…
The Mozart Question tells the story of this world-famous performer who developed his passion for music as a young child with the help of his teacher, Benjamin.
Alongside this story is that of his parents who were both musicians too – Jewish prisoner surviving, playing music in a concentration camp during the Second World War.
