Pianist Denis Matsuev and his good friend, the violinist Julian Rachlin, perform in the venerable Moscow Conservatory.
Together and for the first time, they give an interpretation of a work put to paper by Pyotr Tchaikovsky in the Moscow of 1874: his Piano Concerto No. 1. The film accompanies the rehearsals and concert which, together with the youthful and vibrant energy of the Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra, turns out to be very special indeed.
Following the rehearsal, Julian Rachlin takes us on a foray through the wintry city and to old friends – also musicians – who live in the south of Moscow. Together, they spend the evening before the concert over a dinner of culinary specialities and take a nocturnal sleigh ride.
The documentary will be broadcasted on ARTE on 26 September at 17:40 CET (Germany) and 18:55 CET (France).
The documentary as well as the concert in full length are distributed by C Major Entertainment.
