You can suggest it to the pianist in the video i posted above. He obviously has some difficulties with the piece.

I'm sure there are pianists out there who could more or less sight-read Un Sospiro though, so it makes sense. I don't think you need to be a concert pianist to attempt the 1 minute challenge, but you certainly need to be in the advanced range with good sightreading and memorization skills.

Well, anybody could do it - you just need to pick the right piece!

Sight reading is 1 skill. Some people have a good memory or can play by ear. Whether you need your glasses or hearing aid, some people who are blind or deaf play music like normal people.

The time it'd take an average person to read through a piece, someone with a good ear can hear it once and reproduce the notes to a high degree of accuracy.

It doesn't make sense because sight reading through Un Sospiro just once takes more than 1 minute.

I enjoy watching the Heart of the Keys 1 minute/10 minute/1 hour challenges. I'm not much of a sight reader and I was curious so I tried it with a Clementi Sonatina, which is easier than the music I normally play. It was fun! I recommend it!
