Landowska ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describes the life and times of harpsichordist Wanda Landowska and how she revived interest in the harpsichord as a concert instrument after a century of oblivion. Includes segments from her only filmed appearance (a 1953 television interview) which displays the virtuosity of her music-making as well as her public persona, a savvy mix of humility and self-awareness. Landowska reflects on her life as a woman and a musician, and discusses her love of music, of her audiences, and of life itself. The film resonates with Landowska's music - vintage recordings of Bach, Scarlatti, Couperin, and others. Landowska gives aggressive, dazzling performances of the music she adored, demonstrating why no one ever listened to a harpsichord in quite the same way after hearing her play
