The list of renowned pianists who have also conducted is long; Barenboim, Schiff, Ushida, Pletnev, Kahane, Anda, Solti and Bernstein. Is conducting from the piano "real conducting”, and what training do you need to be able to do it? The new project ”Conducting from the Piano” by the Géza Anda Foundation in Zurich offers masterclasses and rehearsals with orchestra for pianists wanting to take on the double role of soloist and conductor.

I have just been watching two amazing dvd's - one of berezovsky playing all the transcendentals, and one of Cziffra playing Liszt (inc. grand galop) Chopin and Franck (it also has Moiseiwitsch doing Wagner/Liszt Tannhauser). Has anyone seen these or anything else that's interesting?

Theres a film David Dubal did called Golden Age of the Piano. On the DVD edition it is followed by a complete live performance of Beethoven's 4th concerto with Arrau and Ricardo Muti. Very good.

I have some pretty cool videos:

Cziffra playing a lot of things, including Schumann Toccata, and some improvising (which is amazing)

Bolet giving a masterclass on the Rach 3rd from London in the 80's with a very young Barry Douglas, among the students.

Kapell special from the MET (very short recital, unfortunately, the only video of Kapell).

Gavrilov playing a solo recital of Rachmaninoff and Scriabin (plus an amazing Campanella as an encore) from germany, early 80's.

Hello,

I would very much appreciate a precise reference on the
Cziffra/Tocatta, Kapell, Bolet, and the original 2 DVD references.

It would be nice if a bibliography of piano videos could be put
up some place.

Thanks,
Bobo

 From a Bolet freak, I really doubt that it's a commercially available video (unfortunately).

 Actually, I'm not supposed to have the Kapell video, so don't tell anyone. ;D
 I could get you in contact with president of the Cziffra society if you're interested in any Cziffra materials..just IM me.

I have the following DVDs I enjoy a lot :

- The golden age of the piano, with as a bonus Claudio Arrau performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 with Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

- Martha Argerich and Friends. Argerich plays among other pieces Rachmaninov's suite for 2 piano op17 n2 and Ravel's La Valse with Nelson Freire.

- Martha Argerich Plays Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor, Liszt Funerailles, Ravel Jeux d'Eau. The sound on this one is not very good though.

The bookstores or Amazon.com don't see to carry these, except for just a few, and if available in bookstores, only in DVD.

So where do you get all these videos in VHS?
