Speaking with Music

Speaking with Music follows 22 teenage pianists as they compete in the Inaugural New York Piano Competition. From opening night ceremonies at Steinway Hall through five days of intense performance, ensembles and master classes, we experience the passion and talent of these young performers who express themselves emotionally and intellectually through their art. Speaking with Music also creates an evocative portrait of Melvin Stecher and Norman Horowitz, the duo-pianists who created the competition, contrasting what it was like for them as nineteen year old performers in the 1950s with the challenges young pianists face today.
