    Anybody to recommend youtubing?

    I don't know of many, and am interested in listening to and watching the most skilled pianists.

    The best I have seen so far is Evgeny Kissen

    Without a shadow of a doubt Valentina Lisitsa. Watch her play Moonlight Sonata Mov 3. Without exaggeration, it is the best ever recorded (imo)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zucBfXpCA6s

    Everything she plays is flawless; the original piece is never diluted by lashings of her own interpretations. She plays it how it was written. She's got her own youtube channel.

    Other than that, Martha Argerich, Horowitz; but for me, Valentina Lisitsa is the best alive today.
