I just came across him today. He's an up and coming young pianist who's apparently (?) related to Liszt. I saw some of his videos - he makes what he calls "cinematic compositions", which probably border on pop music with all the visual effects. He plays some classical standards though like "La Campanella" and Beethoven's "Rondo a Capriccio". Personally, I wasn't overly impressed with his interpretations, talented as he is. I was wondering if anyone else has come across him and what you think of him?

If this is the same pianist, there was a Youtube video of his playing of "La campanella" posted here just last week. Well played, I thought, but not in the outstanding class.

Edit: Yes, it's the same pianist. Here is the link.

Personally, in my absolutely worthless opinion, he's very good. Not top tier even among the 25 and under crowd, but he's very good.

Doesn't matter much. The public decides who gets a career and who doesn't. All one do is do what they do as best they can do it. We'll see if we hear much about him.

I had forgotten to post the link, thank you.

If that's true, then surely your opinion isn't "absolutely worthless"? wink

The Liszt connection (from a genetic standpoint) is most likely bogus.

He would have to do a DNA test, which he won't. Why destroy the hype. I also think it is highly suspect and probably bogus.

I've watched a number of his youtube videos, and he can certainly get around the piano, but in -say- the Liszt Mephisto, he simply can't cross swords -or fiddles- with any of the current hot shots (try Shishkin) let alone any of the greats.

Reluctant to rain on his parade, but those boyish good looks coupled with a pleasant sartorial sense aren't hurting.

and I may be related to Liszt too (by a mere six degrees of separation :-)

Funny, I've been seeing his posts / videos everywhere over the past 5 days or so also. Wonder why? Media push?

Why are some of you doubting the Liszt connection? Just curious, haven't researched it myself.

Edit above - just read the other thread. Oh well, he may or may not be, but regardless, his playing will have to stand for itself.
