The Life I Love: The Pianist Menahem Pressler
The venerable founder of the Beaux Arts Trio - arguably the most famed piano trio in history - rekindled a solo career in his 80s that led to a string of prominent engagements, including his Berliner Philharmoniker debut in 2014. At 92, Pressler still holds down a robust performance and teaching schedule. In this portrait, which includes interviews with Pressler and musicians who have played with him, we learn of his deep devotion to the music, and the great joy he finds in performing for audiences.
