Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on blu-ray

The new documentary, The Highest Level, chronicles Lang Lang with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Simon Rattle, as they record Prokofiev’s explosive Piano Concerto No. 3, one of the great show stoppers in the concert repertoire. The Highest Level gives exclusive insight into the creative process: the preparations of the musicians, the recording sessions at the Berlin Philharmonic, the struggle to get the best sound and the post production phases. It is an up close and personal look at how Prokofiev 3 & Bartók 2 was recorded and the interactions between Lang Lang, Rattle and the orchestra while recording.
