A Moving Performance

Greg Sandow has been for years talking up the idea of fresh presentations of classical music and in this post he gives a link to the following video of someone trying just that. Given my notion of the importance of gesture, I find this performance delightful. And it could be just me, but that they've memorized the piece makes the playing, both solo and ensemble, both free and unified. I find myself not connecting to great swathes of classical music -  appreciating, but not connecting. This performance really makes the connection.
