Rzewski Plays Rzewski

2007 NR

In this rare concert performance at the 2007 Miami International Piano Festival, American composer and piano virtuoso Frederic Rzewski plays through his most well-known work, "The People United Will Never Be Defeated!" The technically demanding piece is a set of 36 variations on the Chilean song "El Pueblo Unido Jamás Será Vencido!" by Sergio Ortega, which was made famous in the wake of the 1973 coup led by Augusto Pinochet.
