Pianists Street: The piano, a beautiful destiny

At no. 22 Rue Bosquet, in Brussels, lives Martha Argerich, the greatest pianist of our time, and, at no. 24, the Tiempo-Lechners, a singular family of Argentinian pianists: the matriarch and pedagogue Lyl Tiempo, her famous sons Sergio Tiempo and Karin Lechner, and Natasha Binder, Karin’s daughter. In both homes there is always someone playing the piano and someone listening from the other side of the wall. The inhabitants of Pianists Street listen to each other and experience music as a natural language. In Pianists Street , directed by Mariano Nante, the piano is a destiny, a beautiful destiny.

What does it mean to be a pianist? From the relationship between Natasha and Karin Lechner, Pianists Street questions that vocation, its hesitations, focusing on three generations of artists and on the handing over of the baton. An intimate portrait of a group of exceptional musicians, their daily experience of music, the rhythm of their rehearsals and concerts. For them, music blossoms into a larger landscape, as if every emotion in the world had a musical correspondence.

Pianists Street features a screenplay by Sandra de la Fuente, Mariano Nante and Daniel Rosenfeld, who was equally responsible for the production. Mariano Nante and Daniel Rosenfeld will be present for a conversation after the screening of the film.
