The superstar pianist that everyone (well, someone) loves to hate smirk .

A whole hour of him talking about himself (and Barenboim & Beethoven, and Van Gogh & sunflowers, why The Simpsons are yellow, and his wife), and playing a few impromptu bits on the piano in the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam.

I thought this autobiography was really good and I don't understand all the haters. His life hasn't exactly been easy. Thanks for posting this!

I thoroughly enjoyed the program. He struck me as being incredibly musical and humble at the sane time. Thank you for posting. I wish we had BBC!
