Music permeates every aspect of writer and director Freya Richman's life. Her musical adventures took a delightful turn a number of years ago when her four-year-old daughter, Emma, said to her, "I have music in me, and I need a violin!" Richman, a self-professed tiger-mom, talks about her joyful musical path, and shares a personal playlist rich in chamber music.
