World of Music Explored in New Televised Documentary
"4" is a documentary that follows four outstanding violinists as they perform Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" throughout the four corners of the globe. As spring reaches Toyko and the cherry blossoms burst to life, violinist Sayaka Shoji demonstrates to her young students the timeless lessons in the music, and in their own culture.
As the monsoon clouds gather, Niki Vasilakis and friends travel from all corners of Australia to the Far North to share the music of summer with the Thursday Island Community. As the leaves turn, Cho-Liang (Jimmy) Lin and his neighbors reveal to us their New York City's vibrant, complex personality.
Finally, in the icy reaches of Finnish Lapland, Pekka Kuusisto and his colleagues bring the warmth of music and human interaction to the small local community. Directed by Tim Slade, this documentary is full of fascinating characters, fine music and glorious images as it reflects on the global experience of the seasons.
DOC is available on DISH Network (Channel 197), and several broadcast stations in major markets including NYC TV (Channel 25) throughout the greater New York metropolitan area.
