Synopsis:
The encounter between a masterwork and its consummate performer. The sheer size of the 'Diabelli Variations' (over an hour of music) and the boldness of the work's conception make it one of the peaks of all piano literature. It parallels Bach's 'Goldberg Variations' and is Beethoven's pianistic testament. Piotr Anderszewski's reputation was established when he performed the 'Diabelli Variations' at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 1990. Having refused offers to make a recording following the competition, he eventually agreed to record this dazzling version during the summer of 2000.
Filmed in a unique way using cinematic techniques unheard-of for a classical music recital, this work is now available on video for the first time. The performance is preceded by an illustrated sequence of conversations with the young pianist giving us his impassioned analysis of the work.
