For me it's got to be Bill Evans playing My Foolish Heart.
I must have watched this clip hundreds of times. It's a piece that I am going to attempt to learn but the chord changes (and especially the inversions/voicings Bill is using) are quite advanced for a chap just starting grade 2 jazz!
Whats your faves?

Allow me to submit this one. Peter Nero - Summer of 42. Notice how he takes a big breath at about the 2:09 mark so he can give it his all.

This has been posted widely here on PW, but it's still my favorite and *still* is able to make me cry:

"The Piano" by Aidan Gibbons, set to "Comptine d\'un Autre Ete" by Yann Tiersen

Here's a piano arrangement of "Death is the Road to Awe" (from The Fountain soundtrack). I like this because the young man in this video (Lennon Aldert) wrote the transcription himself and it is a tour de force... I've emailed him off and on over the past couple of years and have assured him that I will tell everybody when he is famous that I knew him Way Back When:

"Death is the Road to Awe" transcribed and performed by Lennon Aldert

And you gotta love the next one, just because the piece is an AB forum favorite, and because Maksim in black leather is pretty darned cute in a goth sort of way:

"Croatian Rhapsody" performed by Maksim in all his leathery glory

...I have 42 videos on my "Piano Solo" YouTube playlist, so I'd better stop now. Maybe I'll add a few later.

It has been quite an incredible task to limit myself to only a few videos! I could quite easily link dozens of videos that are related to various Final Fantasy pieces or new-age music that I can play/aspire to play, but I'll apply some self-restraint and just link 3 that are of very different natures:

Map of the problematique (Piano Cover) by muso90
I'm a big fan of muse, and I'd never have thought anybody could do a piano version of 'Map of the problematique'. But I was proved wrong! I think its amazing how she taught herself this by ear, and the ending is simply stunning.

Gladiator by mormalv
Ok so this one isn't quite 'piano' as such, but close enough. I'm also a fan of the movie Gladiator and, again, I'm very impressed at how somebody has managed to play this by ear. There are 2 songs within this video, I especially enjoy the "main theme" song that is from roughly 2:10 onwards.

Where the Hell is Matt? (2008) by mattharding2718
The ultimate feel-good video! \:D I seem to be deviating ever-further away from the topic of piano performances, but this simply has to be in my favourites. At least there is some piano within the backing music (which, of course, I've had a go at teaching myself)!

Man, I love that song! Like you, I didn't think Muse on the piano was possible - until I heard this guy:

My three favourite on youtube are:

Lang Lang - Rachmaninov cadenza

I'm not much of a fan of Lang Lang, but my jaw drops everytime I watch him play the cadenza in Rachmaninov's 3rd piano concerto. Just skip ahead to 2min 50 to see it.

Beethoven Appassionata

by Valentina Lisitsa (sound starts 12secs in). This piece is just great melody followed by great melody. And I like how she plays it. And I like her as well ;\)

Richter - the Enigma

This comes from the end of the film. Just such a sad note to end on - gives me goosebumps every time.

This as appeared on the forum somewhere.

Still... someone who can play Bach with so much feeling !!

I also like that he plays intimately for Argerich and Freire.

Euan Morrison and MmmmBalf - glad you enjoyed it as much as I do! \:D If you browse some of the other videos by the same user, you can see she has 2 tutorials for this tune in case you're interested - one that resembles her own recording and also a simplified version. I attempted the advanced tutorial not so long ago but realised very quickly that it was beyond my capabalities! I'm sure I'll try again in a few months though.

That Lang Lang video is certainly jaw-droppingly good.....but I just can't take the guy seriously because of his ridiculous expressions and movements. Its far better if I shut my eyes.

That's a great video, ddh. It's a piece I recently fell in love with, after hearing Kissin play it on a cd. I have the sheet music, but it's a bit more difficult than I imagined.

I liked watching Argerich and Freire (i don't know of him) in the background, toying with the cigarette and just relaxing and feeling the beauty of the music.

(and on a sidenote; how many times will you ever see Martha and Cartman in the same shot?!)

I know what you mean, I'm a bit undecided on him. I can see why the movements are distracting and put people off. I also sometimes think they are exaggerated for effect. But he seems to be having fun and enjoying playing the music, so I don't mind what he gets up to.

The pianist corner forum has a few threads on the matter... ;\)

I just have to post this... \:\) The boy in the vid got a chance to practice on a Kawai Grand and his mom took a video of him. Even then he's really good, I can't help but add this to my favorites...
He's playing a Filipino folk song arranged for the piano.

Almost any performance by Victor Borge is worth watching. Check out the duets between him and the opera singer. . . .I have been captivated by Victor Borge ever since I heard him say: "We have a deal. She doesn't touch my piano, and I don't touch her coloratura." Just search for Victor Borge on youtube to catch some of his performances.

Oh yeah, it is a debate point over the years ;\) I like Lang Lang playing very much, although not everything he performs to my taste. He is very mature musically and extremely proficient technically. I have an impression of him that he acts like a grown-up child and have great fun. Although it is perhaps a pose he does, and a show he performs, I also understand he may be distracting - but I can't stop liking him because of that if you know what I mean \:D

To change the subject, I also agree that all of Victor Borge's videos are worth watching. I especially like the Page turning one \:D

Hi all, I have just spent the last two hours or so listening to your favourites and choices.

I have loved all of it especially Danse Macabre and Forever Forever. In fact these were first and last!!

So inspirational and lovely. Something to reach for and enjoy. Thanks again for taking the trouble to post your choices. I have enjoyed every munute.

So, I keep practising, in the hope I can play as wonderful as I have heard tonight. (Or somewhere near!!)

Here's one of my favorites. Besides absolutely loving this piece by Chopin, the fact that this youngster can play it like this is beyond incredible!! See what you think:

Chopin Nocturne #20

Additionally, here is what I consider to be one of the greatest performances in jazz ever:

Chick Corea and Return to Forever-Romantic Warrior

Who doesn't love young talents?

Not piano either, but simply fantastic IMO. 14 yo Li Jie plays Gran Jota:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJfigIzhIls

Her hands are so, so tiny, but plays with such finesse and confidence.

Compare, if you will, both her performance and hand size with the master himself, Segovia, of Bach's BWV 1007

Or for something really unique try Alison Krauss'

Yes, I actually meant the whole collection.

As endless and constantly recurring threads about Lang-Lang have proved, these antics are a matter of taste of course, but I actually like to be visually entertained also (why a video if you sit like a statue and have the facial expression of an undertaker?).

Some great performances listed above.

However, I believe this one is almost more than a sensitive heart can bear.

It's Artur Rubinstein's performance of the 2nd movement of Chopin's Piano Concerto #2.

I actually quite despise that because it distracts the viewer from the actual piece. It's not charming or cute, it's just unseemly. If you are making a recording, this is okay but if you are a concert pianist or you are filming yourself this really detracts from the performance in my opinion. At least he has good taste in the pieces he picks though. \:\)

Hi Dennis,
If you enjoyed Rubinstein's performance of that Chopin piece, I would like to introduce you to one of his students, Dubravka Tomsic, whom he brought over from Slovenia in the 1950's, at the age of twelve, to personally train. While I could not find a video of it, this audio of her playing the same Second Movement of Chopin's Piano Concerto #2 is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard done on ANY instrument. See if you don't agree. Enjoy!!

Dubravka Tomsic

MVB: I have to relate a rather funny story about The Warsaw Concerto and how people who do not play the piano...well, they just have no idea.

We had some friends over last year and were sitting in the living room, which houses my grand piano. I remarked that I had finally had it tuned and that it sounded great (considering it has a cracked sound board and was made in 1917). At this, my friend said (knowing I was classically-inclined) that there was one piece that he just loved and wanted me to play it for him. (A little background is needed here. I had been away from the piano for over 25 years and even then was just average in ability.)

I was thinking, perhaps a Chopin prelude or waltz. Ha!

"What would you like me to play?"

He answered: "The Warsaw Concerto."

I replied that as soon as I got the Chicago Symphony Orchestra jammed into the room and had 20 more years of lessons, I might be able to comply with his request. \:D

This one is non-piano, but I still felt the need to post it. Usually electric guitars and orchestras don't work, but believe me - this does!

Alltogethermorris, Yes, Glenn Gould. I've also recently found this clip and thought that the interruption was funny, as well as the dog's expressions. \:\)

I had the opportunity to see an opera performance of "Eugene Onegin" with music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky which was fabulous and would love to share but it's not on YouTube. \:D

The finest amateur pianist that I've come across on Youtube is without a doubt, a guy named Pianodoc82[/b], who creates his own arrangements and plays entirely 'by ear'. The results are very impressive.

Alright, this is an aural performance and not visual but its quite amazing. This is a recording of Mazeppa from Emil Von Sauer, pupil of liszt, and its played at a breakneck speed much like the Berezovsky performance also popular on youtube. the only difference is, this one astoundingly better in my humble opinion. please listen with attentiveness and enjoy.

Here's one Amateur performance I like. And a link to the original Composers performance. It's pop, but a favorite of mine.

I love these. Not a big flashy display of technique, but I think it shows how beautiful music can be by playing with passion.

I like the performances of Maksim Mrvica to specifically Cubana Cubana, Croatian Rhapsody, Nostradamus, Child in Paradise, Flight of the Bumble Bee and a lot of it.
