SEYMOUR: AN INTRODUCTION

DIRECTOR: ETHAN HAWKE - UNITED STATES

This intimate portrait of classical pianist, composer, author, teacher, and sage Seymour Bernstein offers a wise and charismatic reflection on art and life. The question “why make art?” winds its way through the film in conversations with accomplished friends such as art critic Michael Kimmelman and religious scholar Andrew Harvey. Seymour also reflects on the careers of such pianists Glenn Gould and Clifford Curzon, seen in archival footage, and his deep love of piano music proves infectious. “Calling to mind My Dinner With Andre, his film is full of urbane conversation and infused with the sophisticated rhythms of New York City. Whether aficionados or newcomers to the world of classical music, viewers will find much to gain from this introduction to Seymour.”—Toronto Film Festival.
