Duet for Solo Piano
Eve Egoyan is one of the world’s most sought-after interpreters of contemporary new music and is recognized as being one of the 25 greatest Canadian classical pianists of all time.
Duet For Solo Piano unfolds over a one-year period as Eve defies the traditional conceptions of piano and pianist on a journey to find her own voice. Born in Victoria B.C. Canada, Eve is the daughter of Armenian artists who emigrated from Cairo. The film weaves the past and present, the personal with musical moments, exploring the events that have shaped Eve and left their mark on who she is today.
Beautifully photographed and crisply edited, the film offers rare insight into the creative process and the complexity of developing new work that pushes the boundaries of art, instrument and self.
Duet For Solo Piano features collaborators and composers Nicole Lizée, John Oswald, David Rokeby, Linda Catlin Smith and Michael Snow.
