Some one is selling a 16 mm copy of the film on ebay right now. I've never seen it for sale before in any form. It would be amazing if someone bought this and converted it to DVD and somehow made it available to the public. Here's what the ad says:

France (1969): Documentary by French filmmaker Francois Reichenbach about the celebrated pianist. This is the complete film in 16 mm format, on large three reels, running a total of 89 minutes. The film is in reasonably good condition, with some fading of colors and scratchiness of sound commensurate with its age, but certainly eminently watchable. Never released on video or DVD and remains commercially unavailable (despite an erroneous listing on Netflix). This is one of a handful of known prints of the film in the world. The original large format poster on heavy paper will be included (see photo).
