It's all about the music: The art of Marc-André Hamelin DVD Documentary

Internationally known for his musicality and refined pianism, Marc-André Hamelin has been described by one respected critic as the "greatest living pianist" (Gramophone, October 2005). Shot on location in Vancouver, Philadelphia, Scotland and Quebec, this beautiful film affords a fresh look at the music-making of virtuoso composer-pianists, both from the present and the "Golden Age" of the past.

Documentary and recital, including works by Godowsky and Medtner, and a movement from the rarely performed massive Busoni Piano Concerto for which Hamelin recieved a Grammy Award nomination in 2001.
