The video below might upset some, I apologize for that. So I broke up the URL. You can piece it together.

How did I find this video? My girlfriend is Korean and so this popped up into my feed. I've been watching a video of certain Korean piece I've been learning. Anyway, Lola, there is a new kid in town ...

We watched another video of hers, my girlfriend had to translate for me, in which see answers questions from subscribers. The woman seems to be a no nonsense kind of gal. She's asked why she dresses like that. And her response is, "Because you won't watch otherwise. If you don't like what you see, stop watching!"

Anyway, enjoy ;0 Her YouTube name is Leezy .. searched for it here, no mention! First time? She seems to play well, you can check out the other videos.

She’s been popping up in my feed too. I showed my husband just to get a reaction from him. I couldn’t stop laughing. Don’t know why.

I find it extremely sad that a talented young musician needs to do that to get views. That’s the world we live in. The comments are what I’d expect at a strip joint. But at least she’s got a gimmick that seems to work.

But now they are watching just because she is dressed sexy not because of her talent. That is typical attention-craving of the millenial generation.

Talented musicians don't NEED to do that. From a musical point of view she is not doing anything particularly remarkable so she decided to undress in order to grab attention. That is more reflective of her than the society we live in.

That was a musical performance stripped down to the bare necessities. Is that what they call "minimalism"?

Incidentally, the musical niche she seems to be occupying is going to be very crowded with deep fakes in the not-so-distant future.

Call me old fashioned but I value much more what is left to the imagination. I am looking at the "Instantly charming pieces" and some videos have women dressed in good taste playing the piano that draw my attention much more than that girl (I watched the video just enough to understand what the OP meant), being naturaly sexy without being vulgar (IMO Lola is the latter, at least in the very few videos that I bothered to watch a few seconds of).

I have also chosen not to watch this type of video. Wonder if these pianists would be considered talented if the listener closed his eyes?

Talent and competence are two distinct things. The former is rarer. IMO, from the few seconds I bothered to watch, Lola is competent, technically speaking. But probably not talented enough to outstand as a performer so she chose exploring her physique to draw more attention, with a reasonable success, we have to admit. At least until a new Lola (or several new Lolas) appear.

Why shouldn't classical performers get in on the act, with the advent of social media and YT?

After all, pop performers (not just of the fairer and stronger sex - doesn't anyone recall the weaker sex baring their hairy chests (and more) to the delighted braying from their appreciative audiences in lots of pop videos over decades?) have been doing it ever since videos were invented. Some were even X-rated.

I'm more than old enough to remember the glamorous Eileen Joyce (who played in Rach 2 in Brief Encounter), who enjoyed and exploited the glamour of celebrity. She changed her evening gowns to suit the music she was playing: blue for Beethoven, red for Tchaikovsky, lilac for Liszt, black for Bach, green for Chopin, sequins for Debussy, and red and gold for Schumann. She also arranged her hair differently depending on the composer – up for Beethoven, falling free for Grieg and Debussy, and drawn back for Mozart. The critics sneered, but her audiences loved it. (Wiki)

And that's more than any pianist does today (I mean changing your outfit several times in a concert to suit the composer). Of course, she could also play (unlike some of today's glamorous performers):



Personally, if I had the right anatomy, I'd wear psychedelic (and dye my hair similarly) for my performances of Scriabin too, as well as baring irrelevant bits of myself wink ........

Sorry, I knew it was a digital, and it's a Yamaha, but I was wondering if it was a high-end digital, or a hybrid, etc....

Ah, remember the old days when talent was just...well, talent? This guy would have still marveled playing in his pajamas and an old pair of sneakers.

Haha, I thought you were being facetious when you asked the question so I provided an equally facetious answer. I didn’t think you were being serious.

Possibly a Yamaha Clavinova CLP-635, so mid range digital. Not a hybrid.
