Hi Everyone,

A few days ago I learned of this pianist whose playing is quite interesting. Here are four links to give some idea of it.

I liked his performance a lot!!! Great energy.


Always working to improve "Chopsticks". I'll never give up on it.

He's an incredible pianist, and a very nice person. Some of his performances are a bit unconventional, but I'm still a fan. I have all his Alkan CD's, as well as his Schumann CD.

It's funny, because in addition to translating to "bad tempo," it can also translate to "bad weather." I once told him he is the perfect pianist to play Alkan's "Comme le Vent" and "Le Vent" because of that, and he thought it was quite funny. He said he hears those jokes from time to time and he's gotten used to it.
