Virtuoso: The Olga Samaroff Story

Virtuoso: The Olga Samaroff Story
1:00:15 | 2009

Categories: Documentary, Biography, Arts and Culture, History

As a concert pianist, renowned lecturer, author, music critic, famous conductor's wife and champion for equal rights, Olga Samaroff was at the center of a musical journey that to this day embodies the imprint of her artistry and achievements. Texas-born Samaroff (neé Lucy Hickenlooper) lived at a time when music was dominated by men and Old World prejudices - and she emerged as a leader among many. Against tremendous odds she rose from complete obscurity to be the most successful American female concert pianist of the early 20th century. This compelling documentary portrait portrays an era in America's cultural heritage that has largely been underserved in the genre.
