"Beyond the Practice Room" was on PBS here Sunday night. The kids were about 13--18 and were sensational players, although I don't see any of them getting a job...no personality...

BTW, I bought the videos of Playing with Fire (local boy makes good Jon Nakamatsu won that one). If anyone interested, come on over (bring a six pack)...

Thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed that little excerpt of Benjamin Grosvenor playing the Glinka piece.


She was with me even in my grave
When the last of my friends turned away,
And she sang like the first storm heaven gave.
Or as if flowers were having their say.

Wow, I thought Natalia Kazaryan's interpretation of Bach had plenty of personality (as well as artistry, maturity, etc.).

Yeah, Lento, I did eventually get time to watch the whole series. It was very interesting to watch, and I forwarded the link to a few friends. I sure wish there was a YouTube video of Benjamin Grosvenor playing that entire Glinka/Balakirev piece! Beautiful!
