On December 14, 2004 Rafael Kubelik would have been 90 years old. The son of the famous violinist Jan Kubelik and the Hungarian countess Csaky-Szell, Rafael Kubelik became one of the most important conductors of the 20th century.

His conducting is described as warm, human, with an emphasis on melody and a warm orchestral sound, with a dance-like rhythm. Daniel Barenboim said of Kubelik: "Kubelik was one of those rare musicians whose human qualities were evident both in music making and outside. You could feel in the way he treated the musicians and in the way he behaved generally, what a generous and free human being he was."

Although democratic, libertine and cosmopolitan he remained a true Czech patriot wherever he lived.

This documentary about this outstanding personality is the first to be available on DVD.
