Synopsis by Mark Deming
It has been said that the natural beauty and stunning architecture of Tuscany was a major inspiration to Ludwig van Beethoven as he wrote some of his best-known works, and this video pairs two of his most popular compositions with a filmed tour of the places where this music was born. Recordings of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major, Op. 15 and Piano Sonata in F Minor, Op. 2, No. 1 are featured alongside footage that captures the striking beauty of Siena, Nervi, and Pisa.
