From the very start, Music From the Inside Out poses a nearly unanswerable question: What is music? And for 90 minutes, members of the Philadelphia Orchestra struggle to respond. This provocative documentary was shot over three years and on three different continents. Yet by the end of it, no one really settles on one definitive answer. It's the journey that engages. Whether peering into the musicians' lives outside the orchestra — one guy performs for mentally disabled kids, another runs to stay limber, and a pair of violin-playing brothers moonlights with bluegrass pickers — or simply letting them explain what music means to them, Music From the Inside Out reveals that, ultimately, it's all in the ear of the beholder.
