Watching Mann teach is a delight for the same reason it is to watch him perform: It's because here, you sense, we are in the company of genius.

Mr. Miller lets Mr. Mann and his violin do most of the talking, drawing on assorted interviews and vintage performance clips that convey both the skill and the enthusiasm underpinning his subject's long career.

Richly rewarding, if maybe too brief, portrait of a great violinist.
