- ABOUT THE FILM
"At age 25, classical piano virtuoso Yundi Li has already accomplished what most musicians only dream of. Following the artist as he prepares for a monumental concert with the Berlin Philharmonic, we experience the grandeur of classical performance and the behind-the-scenes work that goes into it."
