Chopin on Videos/VHS?
on: October 16, 2003, 12:09:48 AM
Anyone ever seen any Chopin performances on Videos/VHS?

Not just a couple of Chopin pieces (like in Horowitz in Moscow) but mostly-chopin videos in VHS.

I couldn't find the entire content of "Evgeny Kissin play Chopin" video, so I have not yet decided to but it.

OK, maybe noone has come across a mostly-copin performance on VHS. Although I have tens of chopin CDs, no videos.

What about a video  LOADED with ANY CLASSICAL PIANO PERFORMANCES, by any composer, instead of interviews and biogrpahy stuff (that tends to not exactly bore me, but I am more into the performances)?

Something like "art of piano" or "Horowitz in Moscow."

In Amazon you can buy a DVD for $42.00 (import) of Yundi Li, Live From 14th International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition.  Read the reviews, I haven't bought it but it looks like a good one.

Everything is made in the Far East anyway. Just because it's Japan not China there is no reason to price it so high,
