The life of an orchestra musician is marvelous. Mozart, Schubert, and Strauss surround you. All day long you hear beautiful music. What other people pay a lot of money for, you get paid to do. You are gifted, you bring joy into people’s lives, everybody loves you. And chances are high, you are an alcoholic, lonely, and burnt out. Musicians have the third most stressful profession worldwide topped only by air traffic controllers and emergency room doctors. Their working hours are antisocial, their lives lonesome. And work demands from them constant negotiating with something some of them need in order to perform and others have to fight in order to perform. Interviewing performing artists, this film examines the challenge of being a musician and the struggles to overcome stage fright and the difficulties of their lifestyle.
