That historic visit came to be immortalised in the Oscar-winning documentary From Mao to Mozart, a moving work that captured perfectly the musical culture of China at that time.


Concerts aside, Stern also spent time during his visit at China’s Central Conservatory of Music and the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, imparting with singular diligence his wisdom to Chinese students along the way.
