Bruno Monsaingeon – known for his particular sensitivity and obsession for filming musicians – has shot no fewer than three films about Piotr Anderszewski. The Polish pianist first stood in front of the lens in 2001 to talk about Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and his relationship with the composer. In 2008, he reviewed his ars poetica as performance artist and his Polish-Hungarian roots in an almost feature film format. The Unquiet Traveller (2008) is one of the most unusual portrait films ever. The third, in which Piotr Anderszewski performs Schumann works, was broadcast on Polish television two years later. In the coming months the pianist has scheduled a longer break, but before that he plays as soloist for the Berlin Philharmonics, Bavarian Radio Orchestra and Czech Philharmonics. He arrives in Budapest fully rested. The concert showcases string and wind instrumentalists of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, while Anderszewski approaches Beethoven himself through Beethoven’s favourite Mozart piano concerto.
