I can hear in the music of both composers a similarity in their processes of giving physical form to their inspirations. The cruel resistance of the blank page feels, in both cases, inexistent, ignored. And therein lies an important, precious connection between Mozart and Schumann: an unobstructed directness to their music, in which the purity of intention remains intact. –Piotr Anderszewski
Recognized for the intensity and originality of his interpretations, Piotr Anderszewski is regarded as one of the outstanding musicians of his generation.

Probing, intense performances. Mr. Anderszewski plays the march movement of Schumann’s Fantasie at a measured tempo, slower than you typically hear, and with uncommon lightness and clarity, until the famously difficult coda, with its keyboard-spanning leaps. During this breathless conclusion, an intentional sense of manic wrestling comes through in Mr. Anderszewski’s performance. The film is personal and impressionistic, the quality of the cinematography excellent and the blend of imagery and music powerful.

The performances, though, show the lucidity and objectivity that have always been such outstanding qualities of Anderszewski’s playing.
