The Maestro

The Maestro follows budding film composer Jerry Herst as he moves to Hollywood after World War II to study with renowned master-teacher Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. (Tedesco was the composer of more than 200 Hollywood films in the 1940s and 1950s and went on to mentor some of film music's greatest composers.) The film's story is based on real letters between the two men. An array of film and music luminaries — Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, Nelson Riddle, Igor Stravinsky, Stanley Kubrick — are portrayed onscreen as they enter and exit the composer’s orbit.
