The music world knows him for more than half a century and for his famous Beaux Arts Trio. He was the heart of this ensemble and when in 2008 the trio decided to separate, it was not the end for Menahem Pressler – in fact it was the restart of a memorable solo career.

In January 2014, the 90-year-old grand seigneur of the piano gave his long overdue debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker, now he returns for the annual New Year’s Eve celebrations: The Gala from Berlin 2014 will be recorded live and will be produced by EuroArts Music in co-production with SMG. Pressler has selected Mozart‘s Piano Concerto in A major, one of his most beautiful contributions to the genre.

That’s the artist Menahem Pressler so far. We will meet the person Menahem Pressler in the upcoming portrait There is always more to be found – the pianist Menahem Pressler. From new recorded talks with Pressler over excerpts from one of his Master Classes, to interviews with artists like Daniel Harding, Quatuor Ébène, Leonidas Kavakos, Daniel Hope or Sir Simon Rattle, we will gain deep insights into the life of this enchantingly “venerable prodigy”.
