That? That was incredibly boring and unimaginative.


Sadly, I MUST agree!

IMHO she should quit wasting time on the piano and just keep the costumes. I’m sure there’s a market somewhere.., you can fill in the blank for ‘the market’

The costumes are a red-herring and commenting on them is a form of s1ut-shaming. wink She can dress down when she chooses to and she definitely plays at a professional level and her M.M. is from a top conservatory:



That said, the above, is not her real market though. A non-top pianist has got to make a living too. She probably makes a better one than a lot of the professional pianists on this forum with her "angle."

Suitably dressed down, she's played both Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, as well as for one of the world's top conductors, Valery Gergiev.

I think she is talented, and I don't begrudge her "angle/style". It is just not for me is all.

And....she's bringing classical music to a new market, as evidenced by a story in Rolling Stone magazine. Maybe that's what we need more of...

Whatever keeps them away from fake sexual assault stories. I'm surprised that publication is still around.

When a classical pianist feels they have to dress a certain way to either get attention or more fans, I assume that's because they're lacking in ability. Some would point me to Yuja Wang as an exception but I feel, even in her case, her attire often detracts from her performance. I think it's possible to dress in a sexy fashion without going to the extremes of Astanova or Wang.

I already raised your point with Astanova above. With Yuja, I think she does it because she likes it and the effect it has, and because she is bored.
