Secret Song tells the riveting story of the love affair behind the creation of one of the greatest works of 20th-century music— Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite.

Featuring performances by Renée Fleming and the Emerson String Quartet, and blending documentary with re-enactments, the film (directed by Hilan Warshaw) explores the mysterious connection between life and art.

How does knowing about an artist's life affect us as audiences and performers? Should an artist's personal flaws impact our opinion of their work? These questions, never more timely than now, are brought to life in this tale of musical genius, inspiration, and seduction.
