Piano on thin ice

Just a quick post to share a cool video-document made by Providences-production for Arte-tv, with two fantastic pianists, Edna Stern and Alexander Gurning, performing on an ice rink.

I guess the point was to show how the classical music can resonate with everyday life outside the concert halls and theaters -- giving the everyday life a zest of poetry and charm. If you like Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, you're likely to find the video below irresistible...  Enjoy 

On this link you can find another video in the same series, this time filmed at the mental hospital in Paris where the string quartet Diotima performed the Grosse Fuge by Beethoven.
