Classic Archive: Alexis Weissenberg

1960 Rated NR 2hr 30m

In this carefully restored concert footage, pianist Alexis Weissenberg performs his much-acclaimed renditions of Prokofiev's "3rd Sonata," Scriabin's "Nocturne for Left Hand," Stravinsky's "Petrushka" and Rachmaninov's "Preludes." Included here is the performance of the "Petrushka Suite" that inspired Herbert von Karajan to invite Weissenberg to join the Berlin Philharmonic. Weissenberg also performs pieces from Bach, Chopin and Brahms.
