In the late 80's, a team of French film makers persuaded the legendary harpsichord player, who was clearly and visibly very ill at the time, to travel to Rome to talk, play and teach for the cameras. It's fascinating to hear him speak about playing Bach and Couperin with his students (he conducts the lessons in fluent (I assume) French and Italian), and spends much of the time at the keyboard himself. His famous digs at Glenn Gould, Landowska and Horowitz are here, and he is very amusing and entertaining throughout the film. Most of all, with hindsight I suppose, I found the film and its circumstances very moving: these were last few months of his life, and this is an important testament to his artistry and humanity.

My one slight gripe is that this is one in a series of 12 films of one hour each, all released on separate DVDs. Surely Harmonia Mundi could have given some thought to the consumer and put two or three like-minded artists on each disc?

This film will be of interest to anyone who likes Bach or the harpsichord - it shows Scott Ross playing quite a bit and teaching two brilliant pupils, one of whom is the now well-known Nicolau de Figueiredo. You see him here very young back in 1989, and he seems an ideal pupil, as does a second, Alessandro de Marchi, who presents a piece by Rameau ... Ross's comments are interesting for the insights they give into his mind, which come through his whole manner and body language almost as much as specific musical points. One of the most revealing aspects is the difference in sound when he demonstrates; somehow it is different, as if the sound world has shifted onto a different axis. There is a different order of vibrancy and life in the music. It has a lot to do with rubato, I think, and with how long the fingers remain on the keys, creating a blur and bigger sound, as he says at one point. He is quite keen to avoid the kind of dry sound in Bach that would be like a sewing machine (his analogy), and it's true that his own sound is full of 'juice'. I imagine it's a bit like the effect of the sustaining pedal on the piano. At all events Ross comes across as a unique figure, his mystery very much intact, really, but at least you get to see the mystery even if you cannot see through it. He was such an amazing harpsichordist that to see him like this is of inestimable value.

A must for anyone interested in the harpsichord let alone any Scott Ross fan 14 Nov. 2012
By Cody Franchetti - Published on Amazon.com

This DVD shot shortly before Ross's death is a treasure. Not only are his insights in the music played by two of his students (Bach's Cromatic Fantasia and Fugue and The Bb Major Partita) true revelations, but watching Ross and hearing him play is a pleasure as well as a lesson in musical integrity and discernment.
I recommend this DVD with utmost vigor.
