Maurizio Pollini has seldom talked about himself and his art, and never before has he done so on film. Here, in this extended interview with award-winning musician-filmmaker Bruno Monsaingeon, the legendary pianist recalls his career milestones, beginning with the 1960 Warsaw Chopin Competition triumph. Containing archival footage, performance excerpts and intimate glimpses of the artist at work, this revealing profile explores Pollini's musical convictions, his adventurous repertoire and strong artistic associations (Abbado, Nono, Boulez etc.), and his deep political commitment.
