Nicht von dieser Welt – Der Pianist Murray Perahia / Murray Perahia: Making Music out of Music

ZDF/arte, HD, 43 min. Ein Film von Claus Wischmann und Holger Preuße

Critics put him on a par with Brendel, Gould or Rubinstein. As a young musician he partnered living legends like Rudolf Serkin, Pablo Casals and Benjamin Britten. Vladimir Horowitz was a close friend. Today Murray Perahia is a legend in his own right. He numbers among the most sought-after pianists of our time, both on the concert platform and in the recording studio. And all this despite the fact that his career has been repeatedly interrupted by the after-effects of an injury to his right hand. This film gives viewers a rare opportunity to look behind the scenes and observe a world-class pianist at work.
