The Appassionata, or "The Passion," as it is translated in English, was composed and performed by, predominately, the most famous and talented 18th and 19th Century composers of that era. He was the sole musical figure in the time which is historically known as the transition period between the Classical and Romantic eras.
This approximately 28 minute DVD concentrates the listener on the presentation of the piece in its entirety as interpreted and played by the talented and acclaimed Argentine/Israeli pianist and composer, Mr. Daniel Barenbohim.
Barenbohim, as well as being a musician and pianist, is General Music Director of the La Scala in Milan, Italy, the Staatskapelle Berlin and the Berlin State Opera.
The Appassionata is sure to be appreciated by anyone who is transfixed by the cool and crisp tones of the strikes of a piano's strings and the llovely music, therefore, it produces.
