Actually I should have said 'excerpts from many pieces.'

Still, it's an exceptional video.

I doubt that any other living pianist is held in higher esteem than this pianist?

Came back to add: Be ready to turn the volume down for the piece that begins at about 7:45.

UGH. Why do people upload video with the audio out of sync. You can sync up audio in iMovie in about 30 seconds. It's not hard! :P

(Kissin, of course, is amazing in every clip!)

Well that depends entirely on who you ask. Some on these forums would say that the title belongs to Martha Argerich, Krystian Zimerman, Grigory Sokolov, or (enter name here). On the other hand, some might argue an improvisational pianist such as Keith Jarrett or Chick Corea is more worth seeing.

I still try and discover new great pianists I want to listen to every day! The more I become aware of, the more likely one will be playing near me and I'll be able to go and see them smile
