Sunday chess video for a musical evening

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

Time for one of our super and cool chess videos. This one's really got it all - chess and music.

Dutch artist Guido van der Werve filmed a scene at the Marshall Chess Club in which he plays a game of chess with grandmaster Leonid Yudasin.

For this video that explores the parallels between chess and piano, van der Werve, a member of the Marshall Chess Club himself, and a trained composer of classical music, built a chess table that functions as a mechanical piano.

The composition is written for chess, 9 string players, of two first violins, two second violins, two violas, two cellos and one bass.
