what in the world is this? It must be the worst or least serious pianist in history... Bonny Roberts, I'm not buying your recording.:P

Have a look here:

Maybe Bonny Roberts is Rob47’s real name and the MP3 is the result of the above post…

Wow, very well done. Good phrasing. Especially in the beginning. I like how even though she made it seem like she was just pushing random notes, Bonnie still made it work. A very unique interpretation.

I've never heard anything more freaky in my life. The ending was horrible too. I could hardly recognize what piece that was. People must be on drugs to put such a performance for public listening :'(

I've never heard of a man named Bonny, so I'm assuming it's a woman.

Hey, her Bach is okay:

I kinda liked it... I think it is a protest: over played!

Or

Some kind of artistic expression beyond my understandment

The rhythm was irratic to say the least, there are wrong notes everywhere, trills are messy, need I say more?  If it doesnt convey the message Chopin had written between the lines, any "artistic expression" is annoying, confusing and is an insult to Chopin- I bet this person played with a number of mannerisms as well!

it is a form of postmodernism, questioning 'what is classical music'- it can be whatever you like, self-interpretation is the key and can be done however you like it and who's there to question it?

8) Best laugh I've had in a while.  

Takes quite a bit of skill to play that badly!

  Maybe he came across this forum thread about his crappy performance and decided to take it off the internet so everyone would stop laughing at him!
