Elly Ney (1882-1968) is a myth, a legend. Some worshipped her as the high priestess of Beethoven, for others she was Hitler’s pianist. With the help of contemporary witnesses, experts and music researchers Axel Fuhrmann’s film explores the real causes for Elly Ney’s rapid career as a pianist, her great successes in America and her cultural-political entanglements in the Third Reich. Texts and partly unpublished footage complete the film and audio productions about one of the most prominent and controversial pianists of the 20th century. An exciting search for traces in the life and work of Elly Ney.
