Beethoven – Turkish March (arr. for 8 pianos; Larrocha, Bolet, etc.)



2 successive performances of Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Turkish March from “Die Ruinen von Athen“, arranged by Richard Blackford for 8 pianos. Played by Gina Bachauer, Jorge Bolet, Jeanne-Marie Darré, Alicia De Larrocha, John Lill, Radu Lupu, Garrick Ohlsson and Bálint Vázsonyi at a Gargantuan Pianistic Extravaganza in London, 1974.

Please note that the 2nd performance is NOT a shredding video – these great pianists were actually playing what you hear!
