A Tempo: Mystery and Music in 'The Song of Names'

The movie "The Song of Names" follows the mysterious disappearance of a violin prodigy after World War II and the search to find him by his childhood friend. The movie, directed by Francois Girard, is based on a novel by music commentator and author Norman Lebrecht and opened in select theaters in the U.S. and Canada on Christmas Day. This Saturday (1/4 at 7 pm) on A Tempo, host Rachel Katz will speak with Lebrecht about his novel, the film adaptation, and his latest book, "Genius and Anxiety: How Jews Changed the World, 1847 - 1947." The program also includes an interview with Chris Collier, executive director of Renew Theatres, which manages Princeton Garden Theatre, about an upcoming showing of the documentary "In Search of Beethoven."

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
