Maestro is an intimate, unprecedented glimpse into the life of a renowned conductor and a vibrant, contemporary portrait of the world of classical music.  For a period spanning two years, a film crew follows Grammy award-winning conductor Paavo Järvi and an array of brilliant musicians across the globe.  The resulting footage captures the pressures of self-expression, the rush of performance, and above all, the power of a universal language.
