Chances are that if you play an instrument, you likely enjoy how a group of people work together to prepare a piece of music for performance.
On this new DVD you get an opportunity to see how the late conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt worked with pianist Lang Lang to prepare two piano concertos by Mozart. The title of the recording is:
