At the 12th International Music Festival [Chopin and His Europe], this film looks at artists during their preparations for the performances. We become part of the rehearsal where musicians approach artistic perfection, enjoying each and every musical phrase they play. Their performances, the discussions, and the preparations for the stage make up an unique portrait of the pianist’s personalities. Everyone strives for the perfect performance of the pieces, but sometimes, after the concert, they feel something that Artur Rubinstein called - demi-succès.
