Mainly piece with interp, but technique would be a bonus!

It's certainly showy. For me, there is a serious want of restraint and elegance. Throwing everything you can at a piece to play it at maximum speed: the ff as ff as they can be; the pp the most pianissimo of pianissimo... It's like being hit over the head. Not for me, I'm afraid.

For elegance, restraint and sheer talent, maybe Pires playing a Chopin nocturne, or Edwin Fischer's Mozart concertos.

It's not me. It is YouTube channel Animenz who plays anime music on piano. A legend.

Thanks for the review. Do you play piano?

Yes, I do. I don't doubt Animenz's talent or competence in interpreting his genre. It's just really not the sort of piano music or playing which I find impressive or pleasurable. Lots do, though!

Oh gosh no. No-one would be remotely interested in my tinkling around on the piano. Why would they!

Out of curiosity? A willingness to expose yourself to new things is always an admirable trait.

Good old Seamus... haha maybe you should check out this, then.


EDIT: this is the first few lines of his YouTube description:

"This video is dedicated to all my fans who have always showed me their support for my music.
Whenever I was having serious doubts about my own musical ability (again), it was always you, who showed me the light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you for the overwhelming response in my last "Weight of the world" video! I have read most of your comments and I really appreciate your uplifting words."

Well, you did ask. Perhaps it’s because the actual piece didn’t appeal to me.

you have some abiltiy so why not play something by chopin, rachmaninoff, schumann etc. Expecting to be a composer as well is a lot to ask. lang lang and yuja wang aren't composers, and that doesn't matter, they are known for their interpretations. your music sounds like it could be the film music for a chinese romantic movie? it might appeal more to the audiences there. even parts of it, forgive me, sound like it could work well for a computer game.

Plenty of skill, but no soul - in the music, or in the playing.

Next!

Woah hold your horses!

In this next performance, skip to 2:45 and then tell me if there's emotion or not.

It's crap. All he's doing is playing a little slower.
