Music Performer Samson Francois
This DVD, from EMI's Classic Archive series contains footage from 1950-1975 made available from two of the richest television archives in the world: the BBC in the UK and INA in France. This volume includes the Ravel Concerto for Piano Left Hand and the Grieg Piano Concerto, performed by Samson Francois with Fremaux conducting. Also includes 3 Chopin Preludes in F-Sharp Minor, G Minor and D Minor performed by Maurizio Pollini.
Restored from the archives, this concert from Samson Francois sees him working his way through two pieces: Ravel's "Concerto For The Left Hand" and Grieg's "Piano Concerto In A Minor." As a bonus there are additional pieces, including "Chopin's 3 Preludes (F-Sharp Minor, G Minor & D Minor)."
