518    Originally produced by Vivace 1 Productions in 2009. 
520    Stifled by anti-American sentiments towards Americans as 
       musicians and Old World prejudices towards women, Lucy 
       Hickenlooper would later reinvent herself as Olga Samaroff
       and become one of America's first and perhaps most famous 
       international female concert artist and teacher of the 
       early 20th Century.   Virtuoso is the compelling story of 
       an American woman who was a true musical progressive, an 
       achiever, and an innovator.    Samaroff's virtuoso career 
       was marked with improbable firsts. She was the first 
       American pianist to perform all 32 Beethoven Sonatas in 
       concert; the first woman music critic for a New York daily
       newspaper; and among the first pianists to ever make 
       recordings (1908.) In 1944, she saw the immense potential 
       for television and televised a series of lectures with the
       General Electric Company. Samaroff performed and 
       socialized as the respected and beloved equal among all 
       the leading musical figures of Europe and America. She 
       counted among her personal friends all the great 
       performers and composers of her time. She even married in 
       1911 one of the legendary conductors, Leopold Stokowski, 
       whose talent she first recognized and career she fostered,
       even arranging for his first position as a conductor. This
       60 minute documentary tells of the true, yet untold story 
       beginning from her life as Lucy Hickenlooper in Texas to 
       her rise as Olga Samaroff, the celebrated concert star of 
       her time.  It is an era in our American culture that has 
       largely been underserved in the documentary film genre.
