Beethoven: Last Sonatas
Alexandre Tharaud © Idéale Audience / Leonidas Arvanitis
A man wanders through an abandoned home. He explores the space as if lost in a labyrinth. In the middle of a vast room, he discovers a piano covered under a sheet. The instrument is an object of reminiscence on which the last Beethoven sonatas are going to be performed… Beethoven’s last three sonatas explore the meanders of the human soul. At the time of their composition, Beethoven was already locked in himself by deafness. This "psychological framework" is explored by director Mariano Nante, setting pianist Alexandre Tharaud on an inner journey of image and music.
