Classical music's power as a catalyst for love and forgiveness plays a starring role in the upcoming documentary film Sonata Mulattica, produced by Spark Media with support from the Fetzer Institute. The film weaves the stories and contrasting fortunes of two gifted musicians of African heritage, one contemporary and one historical.Along with contemporary violinist Joshua Coyne, the film examines the obscure legacy of George Polgreen Bridgetower, a 19th century violin prodigy revived for history by former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove. Coyne, severely abused as a toddler and adopted by a loving mother, discovers his gift for classical music; Bridgetower, a virtuoso violinist, rose from obscurity to a brief run of European fame in the 18th century.
