Documentary about composer and pianist Michael Hersch to receive first screening
11 October 2013
The Sudden Pianist, a documentary by Richard Anderson about
composer and pianist Michael Hersch, will be screened at the New York City
Independent Film Festival on 19 October at the Producers’ Club. The film, which
was also an official selection for the 2013 American Documentary Film Festival
in Palm Springs, presents an intimate depiction of Hersch, who now rarely
performs in public. A trailer of the film is available here.
The documentary features exclusive interviews and footage
of Hersch performing his music, from his 1999 Carnegie Hall recital debut
through to the present day. Directly after the screening, Hersch will play
selections from The Vanishing Pavilions, a piece featured in the film, in the
Michael Hersch Portrait Concert at the DiMenna Center for the Arts, marking his
second public performance in New York in the last ten years.
