DescriptionMikhail Baryshnikov performs, accompanied by Pedja Mužijević, in "Solos with Piano or Not." These are multiple recordings of one performance: Volumes I and II record the entire evening via close-ups of Baryshnikov, while in Volumes III and IV the whole performance is captured in a wide shot. The original tapes are marked as 'rehearsal': however, a highly responsive audience enjoys comic moments in "Indoor Man" and Baryshnikov's post-curtain call 'dance' with a crew member. Fine overall visual quality; wide shot until 1:15 in Volume II.
