Monster M&H - thanks for posting that duo! I loved it - very much "gets under your skin."

There's some great videos here - nice to be introduced to so many different things.

I know what you mean, I'm a bit undecided on him. I can see why the movements are distracting and put people off. I also sometimes think they are exaggerated for effect. But he seems to be having fun and enjoying playing the music, so I don't mind what he gets up to.

The pianist corner forum has a few threads on the matter... wink [/b]
Oh yeah, it is a debate point over the years wink I like Lang Lang playing very much, although not everything he performs to my taste. He is very mature musically and extremely proficient technically. I have an impression of him that he acts like a grown-up child and have great fun. Although it is perhaps a pose he does, and a show he performs, I also understand he may be distracting - but I can't stop liking him because of that if you know what I mean laugh

To change the subject, I also agree that all of Victor Borge's videos are worth watching. I especially like the Page turning one laugh

Hi all, I have just spent the last two hours or so listening to your favourites and choices.

I have loved all of it especially Danse Macabre and Forever Forever. In fact these were first and last!!

So inspirational and lovely. Something to reach for and enjoy. Thanks again for taking the trouble to post your choices. I have enjoyed every munute.

So, I keep practising, in the hope I can play as wonderful as I have heard tonight. (Or somewhere near!!)

Here's one of my favorites. Besides absolutely loving this piece by Chopin, the fact that this youngster can play it like this is beyond incredible!! See what you think:

Chopin Nocturne #20

Additionally, here is what I consider to be one of the greatest performances in jazz ever:

Who doesn't love young talents?

Not piano either, but simply fantastic IMO. 14 yo Li Jie plays Gran Jota:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJfigIzhIls

Her hands are so, so tiny, but plays with such finesse and confidence.

Compare, if you will, both her performance and hand size with the master himself, Segovia, of Bach's BWV 1007

actually, he put a lot of his videos there, and the best ones are perhaps his Rameau. he's a strange guy at piano though...

Yes, I actually meant the whole collection.

As endless and constantly recurring threads about Lang-Lang have proved, these antics are a matter of taste of course, but I actually like to be visually entertained also (why a video if you sit like a statue and have the facial expression of an undertaker?).

Some great performances listed above.

However, I believe this one is almost more than a sensitive heart can bear.

It's Artur Rubinstein's performance of the 2nd movement of Chopin's Piano Concerto #2.

I actually quite despise that because it distracts the viewer from the actual piece. It's not charming or cute, it's just unseemly. If you are making a recording, this is okay but if you are a concert pianist or you are filming yourself this really detracts from the performance in my opinion. At least he has good taste in the pieces he picks though. smile

If you enjoy haunting melodies in your piano music as I do, perhaps you'll enjoy this beautifully emotive pianist playing a beautifully evocative work:

Hi Dennis,
If you enjoyed Rubinstein's performance of that Chopin piece, I would like to introduce you to one of his students, Dubravka Tomsic, whom he brought over from Slovenia in the 1950's, at the age of twelve, to personally train. While I could not find a video of it, this audio of her playing the same Second Movement of Chopin's Piano Concerto #2 is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard done on ANY instrument. See if you don't agree. Enjoy!!

Dubravka Tomsic
