Body and Intention – Tracking Down Musicians’ Health
It is easy to take piano playing and musicianship for granted but most people have experienced physical tension and strain while practicing. The American pianist, pedagogue, and researcher Dr. Kathleen Riley has spent many years developing a method called Optimal Performance, scanning pianists’ bodies using electrodes.

Rachmaninoff tune and Willy Wonka
on: January 30, 2004, 09:28:18 PM
I'm trying to figure what tune it is when Willy Wonka (from the movie) plays a classical tune to open the door to his chocolate factory (one of the parents say "Rachmaninoff" but I don't know).  

Does anyone have a clue?
Thanks!

I don't think it is Rachmaninoff - as far as I remember, I knew what the tune was and it was a snobbish parent who said a composer who it certainly wasn't by - I think it was by Beethoven and they got it wrong and said Mozart or something like that

If it's Mozart, then what specific tune is it?

Here's a link to the clip:
