A quick low quality excerpt from Pianomania, of Ian Bostridge and Julius Drake rehearsing a breathtaking liederkreis, Sommerabend #85, Op. 1 by Brahms.

A fantastic fly on the wall doco of a Steinway piano tuner and the world of concert pianists. Stefan also does a wonderful rendition of a Snow Waltz. I don’t own any rights, and this is purely for my own enjoyment because I can’t find a recording of this anywhere and have kind of lost hope that there ever will be - it’s been years since the doco was released.
