The biographical DVD comes with a second video: Martha playing Chopin's first piano concerto and two encores in Warsaw in 2010.
The documentary deserves a wider circulation than it has had. Besides being the only first-hand biography of one of the greatest pianists of our time, it is full of surprises, drama, contradictions, smiles and tears. "Bloody Daughter" is apparently what Stéphanie's father, Stephen Kovacevich, called her, though he insists it is a term of affection. Kovacevich, despite the affectionate daughter's best efforts, does not come off particularly well in the film, refusing to perform, unable or unwilling to acknowledge his paternity.
Martha, on the other hand, despite being so clumsy with speech and clumsy, in fact, with almost everything except the piano, comes through as the most extraordinarily human you can imagine. As Stéphanie says, "I am the daughter of a goddess."
Bloody Daughter est l'expression utilisée par S. Kovacevich au sujet de sa fille, Stéphanie qui n'est toujours pas reconnue.
