In Search of Perfect Consonance
Directed by Ruby Yang
During a time of tense Asian international relations, composer Richard Pontzius and legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin pursued a moving mission to bring eager young Asian musicians together under one unified regional orchestra. Since 1990, the Asian Youth Orchestra has inspired generations of musicians to promote regional peace through music.
In the latest documentary by Academy-Award winning director Ruby Yang, orchestra members share a sense of much-needed community with their fellow musicians. With the help of dedicated mentors and the support of their fellow musicians, orchestra members from all across Asia feed off each other’s passion and love for an art that is powerful enough to unite citizens from countries at odds with each other.
