This short film pays tribute to the distinguished violinist Andrew Dawes. One of the finest violinists Canada has ever produced, Dawes is known for his technical excellence, musical integrity, and excitement of performance. In a career spanning half a century, he has inspired listeners, students, and fellow musicians around the globe. Here, poetic images bring to life Dawes’ early years, as he muses on the ineffability of music and the discipline required to become an accomplished player.

Produced by the NFB in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2013 Governor General's Performing Arts Awards.
