A Film by Bruno Monsaingeon
Sviatoslav Richter (1915–1997), one of the greatest pianists of all time, breaks his life-long silence and allows himself to be interviewed for this autobiographical film.
We see his life on an epic scale as he evokes his wild childhood, his encounters with the great names in the musical world, his debuts, and his activities as a concert artist in the Soviet Union, a country tortured by troubles, war and terror. These are humorous and unexpected revelations by one of the musical giants of the 20th century.
Previously unseen archive footage and a wealth of performance extracts complete this portrait of an artist who refused to conform.
The documentary won the FIPA D'OR Grand Prize 1998 and DIAPASON D'OR in 2013.
