What the HELL was the point of that??? That's got to be one of the most idiotic idea's I've ever heard.

Why would someone take a video and insert wrong notes??? Is this supposed to be funny??? Is it supposed to be clever? Is it supposed to be NEW???

I thought that was dumb. Plain and simple. There was nothing Comedic about it.

Execution could be a bit better (shreds are best when they come in unexpectedly) but loved the allusion to the ballade. lol @ #2, learn to appreciate humor- even when it's not the finest.

No it's not new or clever.  There are some great shreds of Glenn Gould, Zimmerman, Argerich, Horowitz and more among others. Shreds have been a thing for several years.  I can understand why you don't like it though. I am sorry mine wasn't good enough for you. But please check this one out. I didn't make it, its the best one youtube though...

if you don't like that then never watch one again.
Good day. :)

Sadly enough, it was new to me. I had never heard of this concept before (I do NOT live under a rock, I swear).

I've known movies to dub over the original audio and do parodies and spoofs, but never had I known it to enter the musical world. My hatred towards it wasn't directed simply at yours, but basically of the concept that it exists. Again, I have never really liked those movies where they over-dub the audio and put silly dialogue over the top - maybe I'm just a little too serious...    :(

I'll admit - the one you posted again, didn't spike my interest, or my attention, so I will definitely steer clear of them. Again, I think the main thing that baffled me was that they existed. It's like when you see videos like this:



And are just shocked simply because they exist...    :-\

Man, that just takes it to a whole new level of cringe. I feel bad being so quick to dismiss an art form I just don't understand, but I can say that I'm not very receptive to it.

OOOOH YEAH!!!!! That hit the spot. AHHHHHHHHHH...



Thanks for taking the consideration for posting a magnificent performance. Again, sorry if my comments seemed a bit sharp, but as I said - had been new for me, and was quite weird for my tastes - much like Yoko.  

Uuugh, freestyling at its worst.

They have a NAME FOR THAT CRAP??? Oh bugger me... THAT'S DEPRESSING!!! QUICK!!! Back to Maria Grinberg....



Ahhhhhhhh......

Don't worry about it. It's only frustrating when people stay sharp and cannot be reasoned with. I understand totally and I am glad you liked the performance of MG. :)

I had never heard of this being a thing either.
Regardless, I didnt only laugh at the video the OP posted, I actually spat my drink out.

That appalling Yoko Ono / John Zorn thing is truly awful, but if you turn the sound off then its worth having a look at the comments. YouTube at its finest lol

Well, until today I did not know what a "shred" was but that Zimerman thing is gold  ;D I have been chuckling to myself for half an hour thinking about it.

Sup, I see you are active right now and I was wondering if you were familiar with these concerti and I was wondering how you would rank these.

Liszt 1-2 & Totentanz
Moszkovski
Tchaikovsky
Rhapsody Paganini
Chopin e minor


Because I’m really wondering what I should learn for a competition

Hello! Must have logged off before you posted.

In what sense do you want these ranked? I know the pieces but have not played them, so maybe someone else should chime in on those specifics. I suggest you post a new thread with your question, it will be easier for people to find that way! :)
