smile I just found this last night, a cool piano-based version of the Macgyver theme song, and maybe I'm crazy but I love it!

And, someone posted this awhile ago - another favorite - the funky Fur Elise wink

MVB: I have to relate a rather funny story about The Warsaw Concerto and how people who do not play the piano...well, they just have no idea.

We had some friends over last year and were sitting in the living room, which houses my grand piano. I remarked that I had finally had it tuned and that it sounded great (considering it has a cracked sound board and was made in 1917). At this, my friend said (knowing I was classically-inclined) that there was one piece that he just loved and wanted me to play it for him. (A little background is needed here. I had been away from the piano for over 25 years and even then was just average in ability.)

I was thinking, perhaps a Chopin prelude or waltz. Ha!

"What would you like me to play?"

He answered: "The Warsaw Concerto." eek

I replied that as soon as I got the Chicago Symphony Orchestra jammed into the room and had 20 more years of lessons, I might be able to comply with his request. laugh

After playing Chopin, I feel as if I had been weeping over sins that I had never committed, and mourning over tragedies that were not my own." Oscar Wilde, 1891

This one is non-piano, but I still felt the need to post it. Usually electric guitars and orchestras don't work, but believe me - this does!

The main solo at 3:55 is just wonderful!

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!!

Wow amazing stuff


Bill Evans spoke of the "universal mind" that exists in all people, if they can learn to think in the language that the universal mind uses -- a musical language that remains alive and well today, still scintillating, still expanding, still showing those who can hear it the depths of ecstasy and pain and life and love.

My favourite, a very young Gould. Part way through he gets up walks to the window while still humming the tune and then returns to the piano to continue playing.

Alltogethermorris, Yes, Glenn Gould. thumb I've also recently found this clip and thought that the interruption was funny, as well as the dog's expressions. smile

I had the opportunity to see an opera performance of "Eugene Onegin" with music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky which was fabulous and would love to share but it's not on YouTube. laugh

The finest amateur pianist that I've come across on Youtube is without a doubt, a guy named Pianodoc82, who creates his own arrangements and plays entirely 'by ear'. The results are very impressive. thumb

Love this clip - you can see his brain working 100 miles an hour!

Alright, this is an aural performance and not visual but its quite amazing. This is a recording of Mazeppa from Emil Von Sauer, pupil of liszt, and its played at a breakneck speed much like the Berezovsky performance also popular on youtube. the only difference is, this one astoundingly better in my humble opinion. please listen with attentiveness and enjoy.

Mazeppa
