Pre-Festival event: Festival Film

  • Phoenix Theatre 4 Midland St Leicester, LE1 1TG United Kingdom

As an added bonus, Phoenix Cinema is also screening Phil Grabsky’s latest film, Concerto - A Beethoven Journey, on Sunday 6 September at 3.20pm.

Filmed over the course of four years,  Phil Grabsky followed leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes’s attempt to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos.

Considered one of the top pianists of the age, Leif Ove Andsnes’s exquisite and exclusive classical performances are given centre stage.

This is a very recent addition to the Phoenix programme and is not in the Festival brochure.
