Our Maud Powell is a 60-minute documentary on the life of one of America's greatest violin pioneers.
Born in Peru, Illinois in 1867, Maud's life parallels many of the great cultural changes of the time.
As a child prodigy, Maud challenged the international assumptions about American musicians. She studied with the great European violin masters: Henry Schradieck, Charles Dancla, and Joseph Joachim.
