Voyageur intranquille (Unquiet Traveller)
Tuesday 27 January 2009

A new documentary about Piotr Anderszewski has been released by Idéale Audience.

Erstwhile collaborator Bruno Monsaingeon has created a film which explores Anderszewski's itinerant lifestyle and musical ideas. Much of the footage is shot in Poland and Hungary, as a specially-commandeered train meanders between Warsaw and Budapest with Anderszewski and a piano on board. Between concerts Anderszewski muses on the composers who mean most to him, and on the paradoxes of being a professional performer. There is stunning scenery as Anderszewski travels into Zakopane and to the rural hideaway of Karol Szymanowski. We also see him rehearsing and performing in Bremen, London and Paris. The film ends with a poetic flourish in Anderszewski's adopted city of Lisbon - a luminous contrast to the snowy landscapes of Eastern Europe and a resolution of sorts for this 'unquiet traveller'.

The film has already been awarded top prize in the music and performing arts category by the French FIPA (Festival International des Programmes Audiovisuels). Different versions of the film - in French, English and Polish - will air on a number of European channels in due course.

Piotr Anderszewski, voyageur intranquille is a co-production with Ozumi Films, Arte France and Telewizja Polska S.A. Telewizja Polska (TVP2) will broadcast the film on 29 March and Arte France on 15 June.
