Filmed over the course of four years, award- winning director Phil Grabsky follows leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes as he explores one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos.
Considered one of the top pianists of our age, Leif Ove Andsnes offers rare insights into one of the composers who shaped the world of music as we know it. Against the wonderful background of Leif Ove playing these five pieces with the highly respected Mahler Chamber Orchestra, we uncover a new and fresh way of examining Beethoven’s life and work.
Leif Ove Andsnes’s own life as a top pianist is also revealed and, despite knowing and performing all the great composers of history, he concludes after this major project and its world- wide sell-out tour – that the greatest composer in history truly is Ludwig van Beethoven.
