I chuckled when I read your comment. Then I searched for the video and watched it. Thank you giving me a good laugh!

His playing does sound good, at a much higher level than I could ever hope to achieve, and as I'm not familiar with the piece, I don't know how true to it he was.

However, I, like many others had to listen but not watch. If he wore a bag on his head whilst he played, perhaps his performance would be improved!

EDIT:
Although having said that, he seems to be enjoying himself, and is certainly an 'entertaining' performer.

Here's one thing me and Lang Lang agree on, the melody in the Prokofiev is very catchy.

Sure, I'm jealous that I can't have such blatant regard for the written text, or that I can't act when I play like he does.

Haha best argument ever!!!

Or wait a minute... maybe we could also be jealous of people we really respect, like Horowitz, Rubinstein etc. instead? Or are you now saying that anyone who plays at a higher technical level than we, we automatically have to envy? Or does it have to do with how many people watch him? Or how much money he makes again?
