Here are some delicious short videos of great musicians making music. No big deal? Well, this simple, fly-on-the wall performance of pianist Marc Andre Hamelin playing a spectacular improvisation on Gershwin’s Liza stopped me in my tracks.
More conventionally, Angela Hewitt playing Beethoven is no less arresting, (https://www.marquee.tv/videos/fotw-angelahewittbeethoven) as is Steven Isserlis with Holst (https://www.marquee.tv/videos/fotw-isserlisholst).
All these are produced by Fly on The Wall. You’ll see why. They’re shot on one camera, which is not always in the right place, and often somewhat jerky. No matter. Watch anyway. These little 4-minute musical interruptions to your day can’t help but give you a lift.
