Customer Review

on 25 July 2011
This is an outstanding documentary, benefiting from unique access to one of the 20th century's greatest pianists and his prodigy pupil, the brilliant pianist and composer Kit Armstrong. This captivating film tells the story of their developing relationship over two years and provides and intimate and often moving account of the interaction between an elderly pianist who is retiring from public performance and a young student who is starting his own career. Apart from gaining extraordinary insights into Alfred Brendel's character, teaching and thoughts about music and interpretation, the film contains some exceptional music, not least the only footage of Brendel performing at one of his last recitals. This is a film which will delight connoisseurs of classical music , amateur and professional keyboard players as well as more general audience. It can be watched purely as the chronicle of an old pro handing over the baton to a rising star. The film looks and sounds great - and is often very funny.
