    Synopsis


    Classic Archive: The French Piano School
    This classical music performance release showcases the French piano school with films of several performances representative of that movement. The first set is by concert pianist Vlado Perlemuter, with pieces by Ravel (a 1966 rendition of Piano Concerto for the Left Hand and a 1964 performance of Le Tombeau de Couperin: Toccata) and Chopin (June 1964 performances of Etude in A Minor Op. 25 No. 11 and Mazurka in A Minor, Op. 17 No. 4). The second features a performance by Yvonne Lefébure filmed in April 1963, of Beethoven's Piano No. 31 in A Flat Major, Op. 110. The third selection is an extremely rare performance by Robert Casadesus shot at his private home in 1971, of excerpts Fauré's Thème et variations, Op. 73. As an added bonus, the release includes filmed performances by concert pianists Dino Ciani and Hephzibah Menuhin. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
