Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli playing the Bach/Busoni Toccata and Fugue in D min in 1949

when I say Bach/Busoni I probably mean ANO/Busoni, the folks in rmcr think this is defintitely Michelangeli despite little more than his hands being visible - the pianism is wonderful. I'd like to know what's in the first 11 minutes of that tape. Wonderful 1940's Italian cinema too...reminds me of Rossellini or is that just because it is Italian and black and white?
