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 Cry

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

Hey, her Bach is okay:

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?
