  • Description

    Full titles read: "And now Pathetone is pleased to present another celebrated Artist." (new title) "Mark Hambourg - The World-famous Pianist."

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    M/S of pianist Mark Hambourg standing beside a grand piano. He says he is going to play the first movement of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata', explaining that Beethoven is supposed to have written the piece when he was in love with one of his pupils.

    Various shots of Hambourg playing the piece at the piano, intercut with scenic shots of sunlight (or moonlight) on the sea and lakes (a section of visuals is missing, from 01:15:38 to 01:15:58).

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)
