Director Eugenio Mira seems to be writing a love letter to Hitchcock himself with the inventive thriller Grand Piano. Starring Elijah Wood as anxious piano prodigy Tom Selznick, the film takes place almost exclusively in a Chicago symphony hall during the pianist's return to the stage after a five year absence. His last performance became infamous for his failed attempt at playing his deceased mentor's notorious "La Cinquette", a reputably "unplayable" piece. The final piece on the album, "La Cinquette", described in the film as "unplayable" and representing quite literally everything Tom Selznick fears about his return to the stage, is a jaw-droppingly complex piece. Written for a solo pianist, it starts off reserved and contemplative and swiftly reveals itself to be something wild and formidable.
This thriller by Eugenio Mira is not a masterpiece (therefore the ending is just too disappointing), but ther filkm deserves definitely more. Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) is one of the best pianists in the world, but he lost a lot of respect by messing up a performance of La Cinquette (a piece written by his mentor). When he makes his comeback five years later during a prestigious performance, he notices the warning on his notes sheet saying that if he plays one false note, his wife Emma (Kerry Bishé) will be killed.
The centrepiece of the score and album and indeed film is the three-movement 27-minute concerto penned by Reyes – the one Wood’s character has to play in the film
