"Excellent insight to what is required of a concert pianist"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I enjoyed watching this insight of the performer etc., It helped me to comprehend what is required in order to reach the high performance standard at an important performance. I spent many happy hours at performances at the Albert and Festival Halls in London (in my youth!).


Concerto: A Beethoven Journey

Leif Ove Andsnes is undoubtedly one of the top pianists of our age. For four years he has been performing and recording the five Beethoven piano concertos, primarily with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra but also with the major conductors & orchestras worldwide – such as Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic. Award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky has been with him throughout.

The film is much more than a portrait of a great pianist on tour – it is an in depth exploration into the much misunderstood life of Ludwig van Beethoven, as revealed by these five masterworks. The relationship between Beethoven and his world is mirrored by the relationship between the pianist and orchestra in these concertos. Grabsky's acknow­ledged skill is biography and he believes that many people know too little about arguably the greatest composer of all time.

This is an exciting, beautifully cinematic film offering a fresh look at Beethoven through the widely acclaimed performances and articulate insight of the great Leif Ove Andsnes.

Concerto: A Beethoven Journey has had a successful independent cinema run throughout the country since March.

“For lovers of Beethoven’s music, admirers of Leif Ove Andsnes… or simply lovers of high-class music documentaries, ‘Concerto’ demands to be seen. It is a wonderfully uplifting and rewarding experience.” – Gramophone Magazine
