Description
Kubelík's conducting emphasized melody and a warm orchestral sound, with dance-like rhythms. Daniel Barenboim called him "one of those rare musicians whose human qualities were evident both in music making and outside. You could feel in the way he treated the musicians and in the way he behaved generally, what a generous and free human being he was." Although quite cosmopolitan, Kubelík remained a Czech patriot wherever he lived.

"A great conductor whose grasp of the core repertoire was uncanny and masterful."—Classical Net

"Humanity and warmth…. Those qualities illuminate the two-hour film, as well they should, given that Kubelik was a composer/performer who viewed life and art as one, with personal ethics being as important as musical education and understanding. His 60-year career is traced through excerpts of concerts and rehearsals as well as fragments of interviews…. The film clearly shows how Kubelik's optimism and honor suffused his musicmaking, as if he were a humanist from an earlier time unaccountably dropped into the 20th Century. And if that always was rare in the musical world, it became that much more so in the decade since his passing."—Chicago Tribune
