And here is Scriabin's Piano Concerto. Quality is not that great.
EDIT: Removed for now. The quality was too bad.

Don't turn your nose up at Liberace. He introduced many to classics and light classics who would not otherwise have enjoyed the experience. His ability to temper his extraordinary technique combined with his showmanship made great works palatable to the least receptive and educated in his audiences and assured him widespread exposure on radio, records, his weekly television show, and most lately in Vegas. I wouldn't doubt that he actually inspired many youngsters to take up the piano if not to work harder at it. I know that's probably difficult for the young gereration to understand. I've read a lot of bitching and moaning on this forum about the inability for musicians to make a buck nowadays--Lee made a ton of them ::)

When watching these old shows with Liberace, and compare it to the gestures of musicians of today, it's a very surprising experience for me: what a modest person he was!  :)

Yes indeed--I thought about Liberace's besequined outfits a while back as I watched that PBS multi-piano concert when a gaggle of today's greats played Stars & Stripes on something like 12 pianos--all were in tuxedos except LangLang in his bright silks. Showmanship ain't quite dead yet.

I never thought waltzes were boring - but I never thought they could be so inelegantly paraphrased :P, he though as he closed his eyes and tried to erase banality of the recently viewed images--the lanquid latte sipping, the lap dancing scene on the piano bench, the meaningless insertion of home movie-style fragments, the wearisome and recurring ardent gazes in each others' eyes, the irrelevant and often reckless manipulation of the music to accomodate a sometimes embarrasing physical gyration... :P (let's all play piano twister--attn. Pianostreet Kindergarten) Their act, clever at first, is getting a bit stale--time to move off the concert stage and on to Vegas to carry on the legacy of Ferante and Teicher, Liberace, and others.

If anything, it is us academics who incessantly insist that classical music only be served on a platter of sophisticate knowledge in order to be enjoyed who belong on such a Vegas stage.  For our act is quite definitely stale, so much so that we can not even see amusement in our own art without diverging into philosophical argument.

Ever heard of a guy named Golka? I found these videos of him playing well known songs that he's arranged. Very interesting. His arrangements echo of Chopin, Horowitz, and Volodos to me.

Here's his Chopin/Mozart-"Double Etude" (Op. 10 No. 2, and K.331)- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh1ingJShQc

And here's his Star's And Stripes/Deep in the Heart of Texas arrangement- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPtU99aVP3s
