, Khatia Buniatishvili
, and Nelson Goerner
. Filmed during the 18th edition of the Verbier Festival. Martin Helmchen
, in his 2011 Verbier Festival recital, presents a program of Bach, Liszt and Beethoven. The adaptability of his technique is on display, as he moves with ease from the incessant rhythm of a Bach dance, through the filigree of Liszt's virtuosic showpieces, to the dense counterpoint so typical of Beethoven's late works.
An artist who 'connects seriousness and wistfulness with success', the audience is truly drawn in through his expressive playing and gesture, vividly captured in this DVD recording.
