Albert Einstein, who changed our understanding of the universe, thought in terms of music. The most brilliant scientific thinker since Newton, Einstein said that Mozart’s music “was so pure that it seemed to have been ever-present in the universe, waiting to be discovered by the master.” In Nickolas Barris’s new film, Einstein’s musical mind and his devotion to the violin are central themes.
