Piotr Anderszewski - Unquiet Traveller

Piotr Anderszewski piano

Structured as a road-movie from Warsaw to Budapest in a special train car with the famous Polish-hungarian pianist Piotr Anderszewski, this new film by Bruno Monsaingeon captures the most important events of the pianist`s current activities: A new CD recording, a master class, excerpts of recitals in Warsaw, Budapest, Paris, Tokyo. Following this, we will reach the deeper exploration – the major question Anderszewski puts to himself and which is linked to what a musician`s role ideally holds for him. This theme will recur as a leitmotiv at regular intervals throughout the film.
