Dmitry Masleev, pianist and first prize winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition, brings classical music up close: using a GoPro camera, he films himself playing Nikolai Kapustin’s Concert Etude No. 3 ‘Toccatina’, a virtuosic etude that makes you wonder how he manages to achieve such a steady image while his fingers are dancing over the piano.
With GoPro cameras, normally used for spectacular sport videos, you can provide a unique, personal perspective from the performer’s viewpoint. Anne Sophie Mutter already uses it and the Royal Opera House used 31 cameras to film their performance of Rossini’s William Tell Overture and create an orchestra guide.
