Portrait of top violinist Emmy Verhey. Who is the woman who made her entrance as a prodigy and in her 50-year career established a reputation home and abroad?
In November 2015, top violinist Emmy Verhey concluded her fifty-year career. The makers of this documentary not only registered the build-up to her farewell concert, but kept following her in the year after the curtain had fallen and, with her, look back at a career that besides resounding successes, involved sacrifices, loneliness and self-doubt. Was it fame at all costs? Did the ‘prodigy’ label feel as a yoke? And can she now pass on her life lessons to children and particularly her new protégée?
