Speaking in Strings: Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg

This acclaimed documentary tracks the tumultuous life and career of the powerhouse classical violinist, Nadia Salerno-Sonnenberg. Eccentric, wild, and unorthodox are just a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe this "bad girl" performer. Both lauded and criticized for being too unrestrained and volatile on stage, Salerno-Sonnenberg's playing comes from passion and emotion. "Speaking in Strings" delicately and lovingly handles the musician's often painful life, not shirking away from topics such as her depression and nearly debilitating hand injury.
