In May 2003, an article in Clarín newspaper reported that Lyl Tiempo “connects three generations of pianists: she’s the daughter of the famous Antonio De Raco, a friend of Martha Argerich, and a teacher for young prodigies, including her two children.” At that time, Lyl’s granddaughter (the child of her daughter Karin Lechner) was only three years old, so even if perhaps Natasha Binder was already playing the piano, it would have been fearsome to attribute the inauguration of the fourth generation to her. The Tiempo family lives in a big house in Brussels that is attached to a twin building owned by Martha Argerich. Natasha is 15 years old and an amazing pianist, and the sounds from her instrument travel everyday at any hour, from one house to the other. This is what this luminous and multi-layered film depicts: the story of two houses, lots of pianos, and three women –who have followed the family mandate in the best possible way– make wonders when sitting in front of the keyboard, but continue with the baton hand-off like a sweet curse.
