Prairie Public’s newest original documentary Malcolm Frager: American Pianist chronicles the award-winning artist’s life, work, and legacy. Frager’s talent and scholarship was honored with numerous prestigious awards, and his influence and perseverance uncovered a cache of more than a thousand original manuscripts by Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, and Mozart that had been missing and believed lost since World War II.
Production funding is provided by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4th, 2008, the Friends and Family of Dr. Robert Chabora, The Eastman School of Music, Rochester, New York and by the members of Prairie Public.
The producer of Malcolm Frager—American Pianist, Dr. Robert J. Chabora (1946-2015), was a respected writer and biographer who explored the life and music of Malcolm Frager extensively. Dr. Chabora’s book, “Search and Celebration: The Life and Art of Malcolm Frager” was completed posthumously in conjunction with this documentary.
