Tzigane by Maurice Ravel / Klavier Trio Amsterdam

On May 1, 2009, I had the privilege of intimately filming a concert of the Klavier Trio Amsterdam during their tour of Washington, D.C. The concert was a production of The Southwest Chamber Players and David Ehrlich/artistic director. The performance was at Saint Augustine's Episcopal Church in southwest Washington.

I filmed the performance using two HD cameras, however the B-roll was poorly placed and thus those cutaway shots contain poor lighting conditions/high grain. Overall the lighting was unconventional but rather atmospheric all the same. Audio came through two cardioid condenser boom microphones direct into the camera.

This virtuosic performance of Tzigane by Maurice Ravel was one among the five works on the program ranging from Bach to Beethoven to Dvorak to Brahms.
