Concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes attempts to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos.
Award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky is renowned for bringing some of the world’s most important and dazzling art exhibitions onto the big screens of cinemas across the globe. Also famous for his In Search of… classical music documentaries, he has now returned his lens – and microphones – onto the world of classical music with the release of Concerto – A Beethoven Journey.
However, Concerto is more than a portrait of a famous musician on tour; it is an exploration into Ludwig van Beethoven’s life as revealed by these five masterworks. The relationship between the composer and his world is mirrored by the relationship between the pianist and orchestra in these concertos. The film seeks to reveal Beethoven in a way rarely seen before and bears witness to what is increasingly being regarded as one of the greatest interpretations ever of these five great pieces of music.
