    Câmeras artísticas.
    Weissenberg foi convidado por um diretor de filmes a fazer uma gravação artística no ano de 1965 com várias câmeras em ângulos e focus diferentes, variando também a mudança de luz, o que segundo ele (weissenberg) tornava a concentração um desafio.
    Lembrando que esse é um piano mudo apesar de não parecer, e a gravação do áudio foi feita em estúdio.

    Алексис Вайсенберг (на немски: Alexis Weissenberg) e световноизвестен български пианист от еврейски произход, роден на 26 юли 1929 година в София, починал на 8 януари 2012 в Лугано. Започва да учи пиано с майка си. Негов учител по музика става Панчо Владигеров. По време на Втората световна война живее в Близкия изток, по-късно заминава за САЩ. Там завършва Джулиард скул в Ню Йорк в класа на О. Самарова-Стоковска. През 1947 година получава две първи награди в САЩ — на Филаделфийския оркестър и от Осмия конкурс „Левънтрит, които му откриват пътя към световна концертна кариера. Вайсенберг прекъсва активната си артистична дейност за близо десетилетие (1957 — 1966). През 1966 година прави повторен дебют с оркестъра на Берлин под диригентството на Херберт фон Караян и скоро се нарежда сред изтъкнатите съвременни пианисти.

    Alexis Weissenberg, piano, Chicago Symphony, Georges Prêtre, cond.
    Please read the original album notes by Alexis Weissenberg here:


    There is endless debate about what is the best performance of the Rachmaninoff 3rd concerto, but this has remained over the years my all-time favorite recording. Not only because of the amazing performance by the late Alexis Weissenberg, but also due to the work of producer John Pfeiffer and recording engineer Michael Moran. They make this mammoth work more intimate by seeming to place the piano and the orchestra in the same room with you. Their techniques may be considered somewhat old-fashioned by today's standards, but I absolutely love the overall sound they produced here. And Weissenberg's breathtaking mastery of this concerto is the performance that made me fall in love with this piece. Too bad it is no longer available for purchase. I have maybe a half-dozen recordings of this work that I like very much, but this one remains the standard by which I measure all others.

    8:42

    Alexis Weissenberg (July 26, 1929 -- January 8, 2012) was a Bulgarian born French pianist. Born into a Jewish family in Bulgaria, Sofia, Weissenberg began taking piano lessons at the age of three from Pancho Vladigerov, a Bulgarian composer. He gave his first public performance at the age of eight. In 1941, he and his mother tried to escape from German-occupied Bulgaria for Turkey, but they were caught and imprisoned in a makeshift concentration camp in Bulgaria for three months. One day, a German guard - who had enjoyed hearing Alexis play Schubert on the accordion - hurriedly took him and his mother to the train station, throwing the accordion to him through the window. The guard told them, Good luck, in German; the next day, they safely arrived in Istanbul. In 1945, they emigrated to what was then Palestine, where he studied under Leo Kestenberg and performed Beethoven with the Israel Philharmonic under the direction of Leonard Bernstein. In 1946, Weissenberg went to the Juilliard School to study with Olga Samaroff. He also consulted Artur Schnabel and Wanda Landowska. In 1947 he made his New York debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of George Szell playing Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3. Between 1957 and 1966 he took an extended sabbatical for the purpose of studying and teaching. Weissenberg resumed his career in 1966 by giving a recital in Paris; later that year he played Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in Berlin conducted by Herbert von Karajan, who praised him as one of the best pianists of our time. Bryce Morrison, in Gramophone, described his early 1970s recording of the Liszt Sonata in B minor as one of the most exciting and also lyrical renditions of the work.[citation needed] His readings of Schumann, Rachmaninoff, and many works by Frédéric Chopin (including his complete works for piano and orchestra, Piano Sonatas No. 2 & 3, nocturnes, and waltzes) are also very well known. Among his other notable interpretations were those of Johannes Brahms's Piano Concerto No. 1, with Carlo Maria Giulini and Riccardo Muti, (Les Introuvables d'Alexis Weissenberg, 2004), Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 with Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic, as well as his Piano Concerto No. 3 with Georges Prêtre and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Seiji Ozawa with the Boston Symphony Orchestra (also with Leonard Bernstein and the Orchestre National de France). His film recording of Stravinsky's Three Movements from Petrushka was also highly praised (January 1965, directed by Åke Falck). In fact, this movie is amongst the most ingenious of classical music film adaptions); when Karajan watched the movie, he immediately called for Mr. Weissenberg to step in for the planned Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2 production, made instead of Sviatoslav Richter)...

    Lovingly restored, using the finest state-of-the-art technology, Medici Art's new series „Classic Archive features great performances by legendary artists, offering a unique glimpse into our classical musical heritage at an affordable mid-range price.
    Alexis Weissenberg's spectacular technique and individual style have made a lasting impression on the art of twentieth-century piano- playing. Some of his recordings of the Russian repertoire especially have set a benchmark and are often cited as top recommendations in this field.
    On stage he has a commanding presence, although he never uses theatrical or other non-musical gestures to deliver his message. Born in 1929 in Bulgaria, Alexis Weissenberg studied there and in Jerusalem before going on to study in New York.
    These recordings, made in the 1960s and sourced from various broadcast archives, span the repertoire from Bach through Brahms and Chopin to Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov and Scriabin. The Petrushka Suite included on this DVD deserves special attention. This famous film took two entire weeks to shoot and a special piano was designed and constructed to conform to the film director's vision. The effort proved worthwhile and the film had a considerable impact on Weissenberg's career. When Herbert von Karajan saw it in 1965 he immediately invited Weissenberg to play regularly with the Berlin Philharmonic, which consolidated the pianist's international career.
    In the bonus film, Alexis Weissenberg talks about the Petrushka-Suite and what the piece and the film meant to him.

  • Liszt -- Sonata in B Minor -- Alexis Weissenberg -- Live - 1981

    27:06

    On August 7, 1981, Alexis Weissenberg gave a recital at the Salzburg Festival. Among the works he performed was the Haydn Sonata Hob. XVI/52, the Rachmaninoff Sonata no. 1, and numerous encores. But, the centerpiece of this amazing recital was his performance of the Liszt Sonata in B minor. This live performance is more gripping in my opinion than his two previous commercial recordings. He seems to play the Liszt sonata with so much passion and bravura. I would hope that someday soon, this beautiful recital will be issued on commercial CD.
