Being born in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century. Having a family martyred under the yoke of the Bolshevik revolution. Running away from home with nothing, no future, no papers. Escaping from the Nazis, the Gulag. Only having ten fingers as a resource, and thanks to them succeeding in becoming the most famous pianist in the world. Challenging Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and suddenly disappearing in full glory. And returning one evening to the Carnegie Hall in New York to face his only passion, his faith, his light and his path, the one who embraced him, saved him, protected him: Music.
The show: A fascinating and moving text. Francis Huster as Vladimir Horowitz. Liszt, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Bizet, Mozart, Ravel, Schumann, under the fingers of Claire-Marie Le Guay.
Director Steve Suissa has created a juxtaposition of screens that tell us in images about Horowitz’s childhood, life, work and concerts. A new way of bringing together different art forms that is unique, moving, true, accessible.
