Overview

During her 92 years, professor, conductor and occasional composer Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979) cultivated a reputation as one of the most highly esteemed of all music educators. With his documentary Mademoiselle, French filmmaker Bruno Monsaingeon visits Boulanger in 1977. Intuitively resisting questions of a biographical nature, he instead seeks to give viewers a heightened impression of the artist and her work by filming her conducting numerous classical pieces. The performing musicians include Emile Naoumoff, on Mozart's "Fantasie et un mineur"; Charles Fisk, on Schumann's "Davidsbündlertänze op. 6"; The Boston Symphony Orchestra, on Stravinsky's "Symphony de Psaumes"; and many others.
