Zuzana: Music is Life

Get the film for educational, personal or public use

Recalling a life of love, tyranny and triumph, Zuzana Ruzickova endured forty years of persecution in Czechoslovakia for her refusal to join the Communist Party, while becoming a legendary harpsichordist and interpreter of Bach around the world. Twice voted Best Documentary, the film’s premiers include Full Frame, Golden Prague, Aspen FilmFest, UK Jewish Film Festival, National Gallery of Art, Avant Premier in Berlin. Zuzana's memoir, co-authored by bestselling authour Wendy Holden, will be published by Bloomsbury in 2019.

DANCING INTO SOLITUDE - When we asked Ales Brezina, a Czech composer, how ordinary people experienced decades of tyranny during Communist times, he said, 'It's an operatic subject.'

ABOUT THE MUSIC - Robert Neufeld describes the challenges of composing an original music score to embed with works by JS Bach, Domenico Scarlatti, and more.
