The pianist Markus Hinterhäuser in portrait.
The Austrian Markus Hinterhäuser, extraordinary pianist and Concert Director at the Salzburger Festspiele, is impossible to categorize. He has established himself as an allround-artist and creative lateral thinker – you won't find any of the well-known, common composers at one of his increasingly rare concerts. One is much more likely to come across Morton Feldman, John Cage, Giacinto Scelsi, or Galina Ustvolskaya. A very intimate portrait, showing this exceptionally talented man at work as well as his private sides following him to La Spezia, his birthplace in Italy.
