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 for most performances came through two cardioid condenser boom microphones direct into the camera, however for this piece (technical difficulty) the camera's built-in microphones were the (unfortunate) pickup.

This virtuosic performance of J.S. Bach's Partita #1 in B-flat was one among the five works on the program ranging from Beethoven to Dvorak to Ravel to Brahms.
