The meeting of two artists who could not be more different is shown in this Magic Moment of Music, together with the concert film of Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5. The only documented collaboration between Herbert von Karajan and Yehudi Menuhin impressively shows the perfection of one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century: vibrato, key changes and the sound of his violin are inimitable, unmistakable and still stand the test of time.
