Plot Summary

A film by Academy Award nominated director Josh Aronson. The thrilling story of how one man helped save Europe’s premiere Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis. In the early 1930’s Hitler began firing Jewish musicians across Europe. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved these great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With courage, resourcefulness and an entourage of allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved nearly 1000 Jews and guaranteed the survival of Europe’s musical heritage. Featuring commentary by musical greats including Itzhak Perlman, Zubin Mehta and Joshua Bell, Orchestra of Exiles is a timeless tale of a brilliant young man coming of age, and the suspenseful chronicle of how his efforts impacted cultural history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Orchestra of Exiles" aspires to a level of primary research that other historical documentaries could take a page from. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Oct 25, 2012

Fresh: Although the movie is overreliant on chintzy-looking and rather corny historical reenactments, these are counterbalanced by anecdote-rich interviews ... – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Oct 23, 2012

Fresh: Orchestra of Exiles will interest anyone who's concerned with European Jewry or classical music in the first half of the 20th century. But it provides mostly the facts of Huberman's legacy and little of the flavor. – Mark Jenkins, NPR, Oct 25, 2012

Rotten: Writer-director Josh Aronson's flaccid "Orchestra of Exiles" squanders the material's promise. – Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, Nov 22, 2012
