Zubin Mehta, at the age of 26, was the youngest ever conductor to head a major American orchestra. Truly ingenious, he led them to international acclaim.

This DVD was recorded at the height of this collaboration, and beautifully portrays an emerging star.

In his youth, Mehta was already so much more than a conductor. His profound connection with the orchestra leads to a unity of sound which is rare in today's jet-set reality.

He understands how to stretch the orchestra technically because he knows it inside out.

In turn, the orchestra inspires Mehta. In their joyful collaboration, hidden musical meanings emerge.

Mehta shows his versatility in his interpretations of great works from the 18th, 19th and 20th century.
