Notes from the Kuerti Keyboard goes into production this week

Catbird Productions goes into production this week on NOTES FROM THE KUERTI KEYBOARDa short film featuring a performance of the second movement Scherzo of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 18 in E-Flat Major, Op. 31, No. 3 by Anton Kuerti, prolific recording artist and Canada’s foremost classical pianist. A music video with a decidedly edgy approach, NOTES FROM THE KUERTI KEYBOARD plays on the visual correspondence between an antique typewriter and a grand piano. The short is co-directed by Toronto-based filmmaker David Eng (who is a classically-trained pianist himself) and Montrealer Katarina Soukup, whose most recent film is a 2009 documentary about the Montreal Symphony Orchestra’s collaboration with Inuit artists during a tour of the Canadian Arctic. Cinematography will be by CSC award-winner John M. Tran (Waterlife). The filmmakers are delighted to include a rare Underwood model No. 1 in the film, courtesy of the Martin Howard Collection, the largest public or private antique typewriter collection in Canada. Shot on location in Toronto at a professional artist studio and a concert hall, NOTES FROM THE KUERTI KEYBOARD will expand the audience for classical music by going beyond its “pretty” side, to explore the fun, dramatic and unusual. The film will be broadcast on Bravo! and will be screened at major film festivals in Canada and around the world. Catbird Productions presents NOTES FROM THE KUERTI KEYBOARD a film by David Eng & Katarina Soukup; starring Anton Kuerti; written and produced by David Eng & Katarina Soukup; cinematography by John Minh Tran; production design by Rosanna Lagacé; edited by J. Joseph Weadick;  music by Ludwig Van Beethoven; made with the financial support of Bravo!FACT. Update: Production stills from the shoot are now available at Catbird's Facebook fan pageUpdate #2: The Facebook fan page for Notes from the Kuerti Keyboard is now up. Join us!
