Overview

The 'Legato' series of classical concert films rests on the thesis that a new generation of pianists are spearheading the re-popularization of the instrument with a unique and quintessentially 21st Century series of performances and interpretations. The series profiles these pianists one by one, showcasing their performances. This particular volume highlights the work of Swedish-born pianist Roland Pötinen, with his interpretations of nine key works from the classical canon. Selections include: François Couperin's "Les Baricades mistérieuses," Jean-Philippe Rameau's "Gavotte in A minor with Six Doubles," Maurice Ravel's "Miroirs: Oiseaux tristes," and many more. The concert at hand was filmed live at the Ruhr Piano Festival on July 2, 2007.
