When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of sheer unsolvable problems. Having grown up in a state of war, suppression or constant risk of terrorist attacks, the young musicians from both sides are far from able to form a team. Lined up behind the two best violinists – the emancipated Palestinian Layla and the handsome Israeli Ron – they form two parties who deeply mistrust each other, on and off-stage alike. Will Sporck succeed and make the young people forget their hatred, at least for the three weeks until the concert? With the first glimmer of hope, however, the political opponents of the orchestra show them how strong they are…

  • "Academy-Award nominated director Dror Zahavi helms this gripping drama as a constantly growing 'crescendo,' raising the tension and conflicts until the last frame. A remarkable theatrical movie and contribution to the worldwide efforts toward understanding, humanity and peace."

    — Jewish Press
  • "There is a reason I love the New York Jewish Film Festival and that is simply because every year I get to discover at least one film that lives in my heart. This year that film is CRESCENDO... the wonderful characters, genuine emotion, music and witty dialog carry it along. I love this film."

    — Steve Kopian, Unseen Films
  • “(An) impassioned drama...the cast is exemplary.”
