Virtuoso is the true, yet untold story of America's great female concert pianists of the early 20th Century. Overshadowed by her famous husband, Leopold Stokowski, whose talent she first recognized and career she fostered, Samaroff was at the very center of a vibrant American musical life in the early 20th Century. Based on the book, An American Virtuoso on the World Stage, this documentary follows her life from Texas as Lucy Hickenlooper, to her rise as Olga Samaroff, the celebrated concert star of her time.
