A PASSION FOR THE FIDDLE (2001)
“People today want instant gratification. Love of a thing is far stronger than ambition,” said violinist Pearl Palmason in this profile of her life. Pearl: A Passion for the Fiddle examines the career and struggles of an 85 year old fiddler including her views on violin playing and the decision to go solo or remain an orchestral player.
Running Time: 23 minutes
“…enjoyed a trailblazing career both as a female solo artist and as a member of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in the 1940s. Still spry at 85… witty and engaging…in this brief video.”
