In Spring 2014 the Vienna Musikverein turned into a music laboratory, a recording studio and into a venue for a very exciting encounter of two seemingly very different artists: Nikolaus Harnoncourt, well-known as an intellectual musician who came to attention as a period-practice and Lang Lang, a superstar, a pianist of stunning virtuosity and freewheeling musical instincts, together with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra record the Mozart Piano Concertos No. 17 K453 in G major and No. 24 K491 in C minor.
This documentary is a revealing insight into the creative processes of two of the most distinctive and influential musicians in the world today. Lang Lang says of working with Harnoncourt that "Every session with him is like a masterclass. He just gave me everything from his heart, and that direct connection in music-making is the most important inspiration for me."
