Certainly the recommended way to get through a Maksim video.

I've no doubt that you'll jump me for being rude, but as I told Guldesque, you, too, need to pull your head out of your pants and stop thinking with little Vic. Cmon, seriously, grow up man.

Well...I started this and it went about as I expected.

How she looks, she's not Horowitz or Argerich, etc. She puts herself before the music, etc.

One question:

Can she play the piano well?

Bech



Music. One of man's greatest inventions. And...for me, the piano expresses it best.

Well, to sum up . . . she plays well enough to entertain the masses, and she apparently looks good enough to carry the cretin vote, but in the end, she can't hold a candle to hundreds, if not thousands, of less "exciting", but far more satisfying, pianists.

Kind of like a very young wine - it's intoxicating, but it's more likely to make you spew purple chunks than enhance the subtle flavors of a gourmet dinner. wink


99% of what I produce at the piano is simply noise, but that other 1%? That's music.

Why don't you answer your own question? Playing well (ie, being a good pianist) and being an artist, musician are two very different things.

People need to start thinking a little more critically, and stop accepting everything as 'good'. Not everything is good. So many people today completely miss what art is about.. that age died with the old masters. Pianists these days usually have great technique and nothing to say. How is that worth it? (I'm not particularly talking only about LA). Of course she is good, but these is so much more to music than just being "good"!

Or maybe they are taught what to say and how to say it and are wary of putting across their own message!
