Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli - even among fellow pianists this name almost evokes reverence, because it stands for the highest perfection, for a cult of beauty that perhaps no other master pianist has ever practiced. But it also stands for concert cancellations at short notice and artist's neuroses, which the media spread with delight. "Beyond Perfection - Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli" is the result of a 30-year search for traces, which has not only led to interesting contemporary witnesses, but in particular has brought to light a wealth of new archive material: Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli has never been seen and, above all, never heard like this before. Thus one can experience at first hand how the severely stricken maestro fights his way back to his old perfection after a heart attack. This is the first comprehensive and multi-faceted portrait of the legendary pianist. "A whole lifetime only just suffices to learn to do something well." (Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli)
