A pianist is the subject of Martin Scorsese’s next filmmain
Variety scoops the world with the disclosure that the Hollywood director is working on a life of Byron Janis. He has bought rights to a biography of the US pianist and is planning it as his next film.
Janis, a noted Chopin and Rachmaninov interpreter, now 86 years of age, was lionised in Eastern Europe during the Cold War. He never bothered to enter competitions. This should be some film.
