“Pressler’s ability to give all the voices prominence while simultaneously isolating the melody was amazing. His fingers still retain a youthful facility.”
The Washington Post

At 91 years old, Menahem Pressler is currently the oldest active concert pianist. He is also a founding member and pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio and has established himself among the world’s most distinguished and honored musicians, with a career that spans almost six decades.

When the Beaux Arts Trio separated in 2008, Pressler resumed his solo career and still continues to dazzle audiences throughout the world, both as piano soloist and collaborating chamber musician.

This 4-DVD edition contains concert performances with Berliner Philharmoniker, Orchestre de Paris and Quatuor Ébène. It also includes the award-winning portrait “Menahem Pressler - The Life I Love” (winner of the Grand Prix at the Golden Prague Festival 2015).
