Performce of Chopin's Valse Brilliante by a young Alexander Brailovsky
10 February 2008 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Ophuls was able to record this performance from above, below, from left and right, from in front and in back. The film is edited to the beat of the music, and it is never boring. Brailovsky (1896-1976) is performing on a platform on top of another platform on top of another platform... and at one point the camera jumps from platform to platform as the music rises in tone.

I wonder how many times Brailovsky had to perform the piece in order to get the effects that I watched! There seemed to be only one camera... And unlike Ophuls film of Ave Maria, there are no slow spots. This is film-making at its best and most delirious. The movie actually makes the music more interesting.
