Anderson and Roe take on the Moonlight Sonata
This video "gets me" every time I see it. Talented piano duo Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe do a "dramatic" performance of the all-too-familiar first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. The skits are dramatic presentations of actual comments posted on YouTube videos of this piece by noted artists such as Kissin, Kempff, Horowitz, and Argerich.
Their website (thanks, Chase!) is at http://www.andersonroe.net/ - guess I was typing .com, but thought I was trying to access it from a search result. Oh well, it's fixed now. They have a CD out as well; I have it and it is fantastic. It is available as a download from iTunes.
