    Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust For Jews during the Holocaust, there wasn't much reprieve from the despair and horror surrounding them, but music - particularly that of violins, which hold an important role in Jewish culture - offered temporary solace and a glimmer of humanity. Violinists in concentration camps were sometimes treated better and even spared their lives because of their ability to play this important instrument.
    Narrated by Adrien Brody, this program follows the journey of Israeli violinmaker Amnon Weinstein in his efforts to restore violins recovered from the Holocaust, and captures the lessons and highlights the music the instruments now bring to others. These special artifacts from the Holocaust, which Weinstein has dubbed the "Violins of Hope," include instruments that were played by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps and others that belonged to the Klezmer musical culture. The documentary chronicles the journey of the instruments from Weinstein's small workshop in Tel Aviv, Israel, where he has worked for two decades to repair the violins to Cleveland, where they were brought in 2015. During this U.S. visit, the violins were on display for the community as part of a traveling exhibit, used as teaching tools in classrooms, and played by music students and orchestras.

    Jimi Hendrix: American Masters Considered a pioneering electric guitarist, one of the most influential in the history of popular music, Jimi Hendrix only had four years of mainstream exposure and recognition, but his music and riveting stage presence left an enormous, enduring legacy. Tracing his roots from Seattle to international stardom, this is his definitive story, illustrated by interviews with Hendrix at venues such as the Miami Pop Festival and illuminated with commentary by Paul McCartney, Noel Redding, Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer and others. Poignant, protected footage from his final performance in Germany in September 1970, just 12 days before his tragic drug-related death at age 27, concludes the film. In what would have been his 70th year, the Hendrix estate has cooperated fully with this film, releasing closely held performance footage that has, literally, never been seen before as well as an extensive archive of photographs, drawings and family letters. duration 1:56:07   STEREO TV14

    Great Museums - Sound Tracks: The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum For 15 years, Great Museums has crisscrossed the country, showcasing the breadth and diversity of America's museum world. This episode takes viewers to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Opened in 1995, the museum, designed by architect I. M. Pei, is a spectacular glass pyramid, reflecting the idea that Rock and Roll is a "prism" through which we can more clearly see and understand our culture and ourselves.
    Why Cleveland? It was here that legendary disc jockey Alan Freed coined the phrase "Rock and Roll" to describe this new sound that was sprouting out of Blues, Gospel, R&B, Country, Folk and Bluegrass. Beginning in the 1950's, Rock and Roll swept the nation, helping break down racial barriers, change attitudes, promote peace, and empower the people. The film features the museums' fascinating collection of sights and sounds that skillfully recreate the story of Rock from its roots to its ubiquitous acceptance as the soundtrack of our lives. It also explores the annual Hall of Fame Inductions and Concerts, which began in 1986, to recognize those who created and influenced Rock and Roll. The museum exhibits are designed to perpetuate understanding of Rock and Roll as a social phenomenon and the most significant art form to emerge in the 20th century. The number of iconic artifacts is dizzying: Muddy Water's primary guitar; John Lennon's Sgt. Pepper uniform; Michael Jackson's glove; Janis Joplin's porsche; Pink Floyd's The Wall; Mick Jagger's jumpsuits.
    The music itself is curated at the museum in a variety of ways, including interactive listening booths that connect influences from one artist to another across the decades. "So, it's not four skinny guys with long hair and guitars only," explains Greg Harris, President and CEO of the museum. "It's also vocalists, folk singers, soul music, dance music, hip-hop, punk, heavy metal, grunge, and electronic dance music. All are branches of the tree of rock and roll."
