This documentary uses footage that was shot between 2009 and 2017, showing the life and work of legendary British-Polish violinist Ida Haendel. <The Haendel Variations> is not an ordinary music documentary, it is not just another portrait of a world-renowned classical musician. Its rather restrained, more intimate approach focuses on the inner life of an extraordinary woman and on the two things that still give her life meaning: her love for music and for her fellow human beings.
