The Maestro

Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco immigrated to the US in 1939 and became known as one of the foremost guitar composers of the 20th century. Mentor to some of Hollywood’s most celebrated musical talents (Henry Mancini, Randy Newman, Andre Previn), he composed music for over 200 films. He got credit for 7. The film explores his life through his relationship with his student, Jerry Herst, a talented but insecure musician. The Maestro takes us back to that heady post-WWII era, blending great music, nostalgia and romance in a heartwarming tribute to this talented musician and teacher. Biography/Drama. 96 min.
