J.S. Bach – Prelude in C Minor – Vikingur Olafsson, Piano
Did Woody Allen already knows he’ll use Bach’s Prelude in C Minor when he he was directing Emma Stone playing the piano ? Jill Pollard/Emma Stone is moving her head right and left while performing the piece, but except a right hand jump toward the end, this prelude is played right in the center of the keyboard and the two hands don’t move at all.
