Filmed over the course of four years award-winning director Phil Grabsky follows leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes’s attempt to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos. Considered one of the top pianists of the age, Leif Ove Andsnes offers rare insights into the mind of a world-class pianist and access to his personal and professional life.

Against the wonderful background of Leif Ove playing these five pieces, we also show how these works offer a new and fresh way of examining Beethoven’s life and work. Leif Ove Andsnes’s own life as a top pianist is also revealed – and, despite knowing and performing all the great composers of history, he concludes after this major project with Beethoven’s piano concerto – and a world-wide sell-out tour – that the greatest composer in history is indeed Ludwig van Beethoven.

High class and wonderful, Concerto demands to be seen.” Gramophone
