A film which traces the development of an exceptional musical talent from childhood to the beginnings of musical maturity.
This is the latest in our series of films with young artists in the early stages of their careers (the others were Jacqueline du Prť, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Pinchas Zukerman, Itzhak Perlman, Evgeny Kissin and Daniil Trifonov).
Karim Said was born in Amman, where he studied percussion with his father and the piano with Agnes Victorovna Bashir (alumna of the Gnessin School, Moscow). He has been applauded by established musicians and juries in several countries and has already won nine international prizes.
His distinguishing characteristics are his naturalness, both in his music and his personality, his humour, his intelligence and a total lack of pretence but, above and beyond these things, it is the way in which his music gets through to his audiences and touches people, that sets him apart.
Our film seeks to capture all of these qualities and to watch his youthful progress in a story with which a great many people will be able to identify worldwide.
Karim Said is a lively fellow with a very endearing gift. He is a true musician, similar in some ways to Edwin Fischer or to Karimís mentor, Daniel Barenboim.
The film has been shown on television by the BBC and in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Australia, Estonia and in the Barbican Centre in London.
