Pretty brilliant, but, like a lot of pianists, he plays it a bit too fast for my taste.

Does anyone know of a good recording on Youtube where this movement is played slower?

lol holy s**t  Cheesy  poor piano.. I'm not going to feel guilty about breaking strings after seeing this guy.

I like the thunder he created, but I wish he would stick to Liszt's rhythm more closely, and be sure to play the right melodic notes.  Thrashy noise comes off better when it has some momentum and structure to it, imo

that's appalling. I'm glad I'm not the person who it's the memorial concert for.
He shouldn't be playing in public for that. I'd be upset if I had payed for that. about 20% wrong notes!
I have to admit that I like the banging, but not over that many wrong notes.
No wonder he runs off the stage at the end. And he wears leather pants. Not a proper pianist.
However, I do congratulate on his confidence to perform that in public. I learnt that lesson when i performed a hack of Rach's 23 no 5. Now i'm up to playing slow pathetique movt. instead...

One should really not make a show of oneself at a memorial service for another person.  This is wrong on so many levels, not the least of which is the unbearable smashing on the piano.  This person should be ashamed of himself for making a mockery of a solemn service, and for making a mockery of the memory of Liszt.

I had the pleasure of seeing the fusion guitarist Shawn Lane 3 times before he passed away.

He could play the hardest parts of the goldbergvariations on his guitar and sing "what the left hand plays on the piano" at the same time

Incredible
