MONDSCHEINSONATE - Elly Ney Performs Ludwig van Beethoven (2 CDS + 1 DVD)

$ 63.69 $ 69.99

Elly Ney (1882-1968) is a myth, a legend. Some worshipped her as the high priestess of Beethoven, for others she was Hitler’s pianist. With the help of contemporary witnesses, experts and music researchers this film explores the real causes for Elly ney’s rapid career as a pianist, her great successes in America and her cultural-political entanglements in the Third Reich. Texts and partly unpublished footage complete the film and audio productions about one of the most prominent and controversial pianists of the 20th century. This brand new biographical documentary shows the whole artistic and personal history and contradictions regarding her Nazi involvement. Fifty years after Elly Ney’s death Frithjof von Bodungen opened his private archive to make rarely seen photographs, audio footage and personal letters accessible. This edition also contains an audiovisual production of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Sonata No. 12 in A flat major- historical archive footage available here for the first time.
