Piano Notes
A journey through the history of piano music from JS Bach to Frederic Chopin

Ronald Brautigam, internationally respected musician, remarkable not only for his virtuosity and musicality but also for the eclectic nature of his musical interests, presents a history of piano music. Brautigam discusses and performs a specific piano piece from composers including Scarlatti, JS Bach, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin.

In each film he demonstrates not only his skill as a pianist but his insightful and humorous knowledge of musical history.
