Lion (2016) is a story of Saroo, a five-year-old boy from India who in the wake of a series of unfortunate events gets lost on a train and ends up in Calcutta, 2,500 km away from home. So far from his family, the little boy lands in an orphanage and is then adopted by an Australian family. Twenty five years on, he decides to find his family and go home.

The touching film based on a true story has gathered six Oscar nominations this year, including for best music. The soundtrack has also been rewarded with nominations for Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards. It was authored by two composers: Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann) and Dustin O’Halloran, who are privately friends and have pursued solo careers for many years, treating the film score as something that would add variety to their artistic work. On a daily basis they are both artists of new music. Hauschka is known as a master of prepared piano while Dustin O’Halloran is famous for his minimalist vibes and ambient-like productions.

At a private pre-Oscar party at one of the producers houses Volker and Dustin sat at the piano and improvised on the theme they had created for Lion. FMF envoys were also present at the party, and they grasped the opportunity to convince the duo to develop that spontaneous performance into a purpose-made FMF concert for the Cinematic Piano cycle.
