What if Outin was Valentina Lisitsa?


And I've been SO careful of not revealing my indentity to avoid stalkers  >:(

Oh, for those of you who may have heard my recordings here: I had just got out of a hospital after falling down the stairs, had an amnesia, broke a few fingers and was also on heavy meds, so it didn't really sound like me  ;D

He'd sit still and stop making faces!

Being famous is sometimes quite stressing you know, so we like to create alter egos. And I have a lot of time to hang out here on pianostreet since I am already so good that I hardly ever practice anymore. And when I do it goes straight into Youtube or DVD.

There was Robert Henry on here a long time ago.  And there were twins too.

A concertizing pianist most likely wouldn't have time to spend on the forum and probably wouldn't get much out of it besides an ounce of amusement.

Um... your attributions are a bit odd, but...

Just how sure are you that none of the more obviously knowledgeable folks aren't, in fact, famous pianists?  To be honest, I wouldn't be sure unless I heard a recording -- or better yet, a video -- of them, positively identified in some way.  It is clear that we have some very knowledgeable people on here...

And there is nothing log a blog/forum or whatever for being inherently anonymous!

A working musician would be pretty busy.... And what would this forum have to offer them, except for some "slumming?"  And why would they bother contributing much here?  Someone will pay them in real life and they'll probably have some results in real life.  Here some teenage might start arguing or harassing them.


If the pros are here, they don't contribute much.  The most I've seen is more "blue collar" accompanists and music teachers.

A good counterexample would be J Menz.

Rachmaninoff had an affair with a black woman.

I'm his grandson.

No but seriously though, if anyone here was a famous (or not famous) concert pianist, it would probably be Perfect Pitch or Fnork.

Valentina Lisitsa should have her own concert hall and conservatory.

Speaking for myself, the fame or otherwise of a poster is completely irrelevant, or at most of no more than passing interest. Then again, I haven't attended a concert for forty years, don't really like most classical music and wouldn't know most musicians from a bar of soap anyway, so I am hardly typical.

You are forgetting the greatest of them all:

- hfmadopter / David - The Bach of this age

I am but a simpleton, and a simpleton I shall remain. Dedicated to the ones who thoroughly had patience with me and helped guide me to the right direction.

One can only hope I'll be as good as him one day. That's a really big statement, seeing as I've never heard David playing.

But you guys are the same person!

Ever wonder why you never see Yundi Li and Lang Lang in the same place?
