Virtuoso piano technique

Valentina Lissitsa probably isn't a household name on these pages, but I particularly like her playing style and the fact that she puts a lot of instructive videos on Youtube.

As she says herself, the above leaves a fair bit to be desired but it's great to be able to watch her hands from above playing Beethoven's 4th, even though the piano could do with a good tune.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

More virtuoso hands from above. I quite like the fancy light effects though I can imagine that others might find them annoying. I don't know anything more about the pianist, I just followed the link from another forum, and thought some on here might enjoy it.

Not virtuoso technique, but after several days of ultra-racing and wearing cycling shoes:

I have just been listening to tonight's Prom: Martha Argerich playing Tchaikovsky's 1st piano concerto, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. Wonderful performance - and it's great to think that these two septuagenarians grew up together in Buenos Aires.

Can I plug - not a tenuous claim to fame here - this guy http://philipedwardfisher.com is actually a friend of mine for real :-)


He's the little brother of my roommate when I was a student.  I first heard him play about six months after he started playing at the age of 10-ish.  He already blew away anyone else I'd ever heard play live - by miles.  Now a really quite successful and award winning virtuoso concert pianist.
He came to my wedding and I was too embarrassed to ask him to play at it - bit of a regret there.
