IGOR LEVIT - PIANIST provides insights into an artist's personality and into the work that determines the artist's life. He does not "rehearse" a piece, he "meets" the work and the composer.
This encounter leads again and again to an intensive confrontation with the artist's own ability to enter into the music, to discover new aspects, sounds and moods that inscribe themselves as "memory of the fingers".
Finally, when the sonata is performed in the Concert Hall, we discover how the soloist's work merges into the shared experience with the audience.
