This is an exciting, beautifully cinematic film offering a fresh look at Beethoven through the widely acclaimed performances and articulate insight of the great Leif Ove Andsnes.\ \ Filmed over the course of four years, award-winning director Phil Grabsky follows leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes as he travels the world playing sell-out concerts with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in an attempt to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of piano works for piano ever written: Beethoven\'s five piano concertos.\ \ Considered one of the top pianists of the age, Leif Ove Andsnes offers a rare insight into the world of a world-class pianist but, more importantly, against the backdrop of Leif Ove  and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra playing these five pieces, the film attempts to peel back the many myths of Beethoven\'s life to explore how this prodigious talent from Bonn became one of the world\'s greatest composers by the time he wrote the fifth concerto. Perhaps, above all, it is the fresh new biography of Beethoven that is most revealing.\
