Two Radio-Canada television performances from 1956 and 1979 provide an overview of the artistry of the acclaimed pianist Aldo Ciccolini. 52 minutes, color/black & white.
“The earliest telecast is of the first movement only of Rachmaninov's Third Concerto… The most valuable feature is the unusual close camera angle above Ciccolini's right shoulder: for students of fingering, phrasing and touch, it' useful footage. …Ciccolini coaxes a lovely singing tone from the Baldwin with minimal pedal effects. How good he is at the deadpan humour of the two Satie suits which, in 'd'Edriophthalma' includes some amusing Chopin plagiarisms.”
