What a wonderful Morton technique, powerfully rhythmic but relaxed and controlled. This music is so difficult to play really well.

A superb interpretation of this piece, perhaps the best I have ever heard. I was told he had stopped playing for some years, so thank goodness he seems to have started again. He is a really good ragtime player; listen to the lyricism of his inner voices and accents.

I only found out about it when trying to find out whether or not a glockenspiel concerto was written. Someone wrote one for a Sheng, but not a glockenspiel. Crazy, huh?

So the sound of the TARDIS is a key scraping a piano string?  ie It's a piano.  (About 6:38 on this video.)  There's some piano-related trivia.

Haha.  I have never seen a piano spin during a performance before.  That would futz with all the people who specific picked a certain seat so they could see the pianist's hands.

If we need a more virtuosic arrangement of Beer Barrel Polka... Now we know where to look.

Man... I don't say stuff is crap very much but... It's really not.  Yeh, for some technique there, but... I guess it only takes a bit of crap of to taint the whole performance.

Sideburns?
And the glitter Dracula look...
The candelabra though... If you're going to do that, get a freaking real candle, not a light bulb.

5:50 in... Ok...  Waaaay too much cheese. This is like watching a car accident.


So you take the technique, and some training must have been involved...  Why turn to the cheese side?  Must have made enough money to convince him....



*Bob boos at the end.* Boo!  Boo, I say!  That was cheesy and you feel bad about it!  Boo!


I heard about this guy when I was growing up.   Roll Eyes  He's making pianists look bad.

I see virtuoso there.  But it's in the negative sense.  Technique, but it sounds all loud, like a player piano.

Recital idea though.  Chicks at the piano.  I haven't seen that before.

It's like Tim H on steroids.... *Bob shudders.*


Technique is nice.  The amount of music that guy must have cranked out is probably impressive too.  Seems like a waste though if he was just churning out cheese.  I suppose that's the question -- Could he play with more nuance?

Usually, the videos I get sent are bloody awful, like covers of Miley Cyrus, One Direction, or Justin Bieber. Finally, something decent. First piece by Haydn I've ever listened to, as well.

Bollocks. I hate when that happens.

It was "Divertimento for Cello in D", or something along those lines.
