David Helfgott is one of the most exceptional artists of our time. Through his musical talent, Helfgott gained a scholarship at the Royal College of Music in London and played concerts around the globe. In 1970, after playing world-famous Royal Albert Hall, he suffered a nervous breakdown and spent the following eleven years in psychiatric clinics. Only after meeting his future wife, Helfgott reconnected with his ‘inner music’ and started playing the Piano again.
This CD contains the Original Soundtrack of the highly successful documentary ‘Hello I Am David!’, the added DVD contains the concert, for which David prepares in the documentary picture, plus bonus material.
