Byron Janis is considered one of the great concert pianists of the 20th century and perhaps, in American history; yet few know his story. THE BYRON JANIS STORY recounts the musician's miraculous, unusual and inspiring life. Janis overcame every challenge — a tragic childhood accident, five hand surgeries, severe bursitis and debilitating arthritis — and today serves as an inspiration for those who have triumphed over adversity. In his own words, the legend talks about his boyhood trauma; his tutelage under the strong-willed Vladimir Horowitz; his debut at New York City's Carnegie Hall in 1948; his cultural exchange with the Soviet Union in 1960; his appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and his 1984 performance at the White House, in which he revealed his battle with arthritis to the public for the first time. THE BYRON JANIS STORY also features interviews with conductor Lorin Maazel, actress Marian Seldes, pianist Emanuel Ax, and Byron's wife, Maria (Gary Cooper's daughter) and his son, Stefan.
