That douchebag deleted my comment where I very nicely gave him advice on how to improve his performance of the prelude.   Angry

Does he think his interpretation is definitive?   Roll Eyes

When i listened to it, i was thinking to myself that he changed the rhythm,added dots to notes , placed accents  in the left hand, and s-t-r-e-c-t-h-e-d rubato to the limit  Shocked

But  that's how he intended on interpreting this piece, he isnt playing this for a formal audience, or i'd hope not.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mWcTtNkERg
For anyone who doesn't know this artist, Kapell was one of the most phenomenal rising young pianists of his day. He died tragically in 1953 in a plane crash returnig from an Australian concert tour - he was only 31. I love the somewhat awkward aspect of this live TV performance - especially when the announcer chimes in with "and now..." before he fiinishes the Chopin. And the editorial liberties he takes with the Scarlatti... Wink Thanks for sharing this.

You're not missing anything except a solid butchering of the moonlight sonata. Imagine the same notes but an insistent repeating rhythm that takes every shred of character out of the piece.

The only people that I think would enjoy this piece of fecal matter are people who think the moonfright sontata is the next step up from FF themes.  Roll Eyes

Let em have it, but I can't stand to listen to it.  I actually listened to about 1 minute of it before deciding he has nothing to add to it except a boring rhythm.

No doubt a good vocoder, but this is a studio job in addition to that.  There's no way on earth that someone could produce what he did on this video live without prior preparation, and by that I mean recording and cueing the vocoder with recorded samples.

Dudley Moore Plays Beethoven Sonata Parody

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GazlqD4mLvw

"In this clip from the 1950's-60s British comedy group "Beyond the Fringe," Dudley Moore plays a very funny but also very musically well-done parody of a Beethoven Piano Sonata, using the famous whistling tune from "Bridge Over the River Kwai" as a thematic subject."

I liked that piece a lot better than Xenakis. Personally though I'd rather hear Keith Jarrett improvise like this

Keith Jarrett - Tokyo 2002 solo concert

That's one of my favorite recordings by him, especially near the middle, it gets really cool.

You're boring, your inane comments are boring, and if there was someone bored there it was probably one of your kind.

Now why don't you go listen to Lang Lang play the Moonlight Sonata; IE go back to the slums of the most retrograde, inferior type of classical listeners where you belong.

Haha, now you are even degrading the real music for the sake of this crap. Beethoven was way better a composer than any of these wannabes who compose all the 'artistic' and 'modern' 'music'. I bet the composer of this piece was like "Yay, I'll make them shove some forks and sheep and other stupid sh*t in the piano so it could sound even more retarded".

Anyways, it seems like you derive a lot of pleasure from your false sense of superiority you get by listening to this inferior and stupid music. Good for you.
