"Live from Suntory Hall"09 January 1988Music76 mins
Pianist Yevgeny Kissin recorded live at the Suntory Hall in Tokyo on May 12th, 1987. Kissin's musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations have put him in the forefront of today's pianists. He makes regular recital tours of Europe, America and Asia to sold-out houses. He has performed with all the leading orchestras of the world under such conductors as Abbado, Ashkenazy, Barenboim, Davis, Gergiev, Giulini, Jansons, Karajan, Levine, Maazel, Muti, Ozawa, Solti, Svetlanov and Temirkanov. Kissin has also performed chamber music with Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer, James Levine, Alexander Knyazev, Mischa Maisky, Thomas Quasthoff, Isaac Stern and others.
In this modern take on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Frank Cross (Bill Murray) is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen).
Alison follows her friends to a summer camp for cheerleaders. But she is having bad nightmares. Her boyfriend has followed her to the camp but he seems to be more interested in the other girls, girls who sooner or later are found brutally murdered.
