Description Reviews
This South Bank Show presentation profiles David Helfgott, the Australian classical pianist whose extraordinary life-story inspired the Oscar-winning film Shine.

Following the huge success of Shine, David Helfgott has returned to the concert platform where his performances have thrilled audiences. This program captures the energy and enthusiasm generated by this warm, humorous man.

Melvyn Bragg's conversations with the pianist and his family are interspersed with dramatic footage from Shine, and performance excerpts from Helfgott's 1997 World Tour.

This DVD contains over 40 minutes of extra concert footage from David Helfgott in Concert, Nottingham, that was not broadcast as part of the original London Weekend Television South Bank Show. Works included:

Mendelssohn, Andante & Rondo Capriccioso in E minor
Liszt, Un Sospiro, Concert Etude No. 3
Liszt, Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6
Beethoven, Appassionata, Sonata No. 23 in F minor
