Someone has already posted on Pianist's corner, but I thought I might also share this performance.

Right now YouTube is showing the crowd milling around, with the concert about to start. Tune in if you can!

it's too bad I can't understand much through her accent. Thankfully, though, I can hear plenty through her beautiful playing smile

Thanks for the post - even though I watch her playing often, I wouldn't have likely noticed this for some time

I'm largely ignorant about this lady except for performances I have seen on YouTube.

I don't see any major piano competitions listed for her - just something for duo-pianists.

IF this is true, I would like to know for sure. Anyone who gets success without the competition grind is of great interest to me, since I loathe these competitions. frown

I have only watched a part of this video, but I love her playing. Thank you for the heads up.

I actually became aware of her through youtube and then because of her love of Bosendorfer. We have provided pianos for her.

Tame and contrived performance IMO. I can´t believe the attention she gets. Maybe it because of her clever marketing on youtube.

What I object to in the Hungarian rhapsody:
No spine, no bittersweetness, no old time charm. She doesn´t seem to understand the core of the music, playing it in a style that belong somewhere else.

Here is a master playing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufNMkrPeJFU

yikes, yes. She's playing this wonderful HR as if it's a Chopin ballade. It's got to have bite, gypsy flair, and the rhythmic accents are often missing or off.....
