I think the recording quality was bad, because I was hearing some sort of cropping or white noise at the loudest points or something. Even so, it did seem a bit "bangy" for my tastes. One can convey the emotion without destroying the instrument.

Well, I am glad I am not the only one with reservations about Kissin's version. The banging was just too much for me. Gaby Tu

I dunno, I like the banging. But I'm more into the non-classical than otherwise (though I do listen to classical on occasion). So a lot of the modern piano music I listen to involves destroying the keys (not literally of course). I think it's a fantastic way to convey emotion, when anger or power or something in that vein is the emotion they're trying to convey, you know...

Example: http://youtube.com/watch?v=5TgIgYFX6ZY
And also http://youtube.com/watch?v=rq14jkwfars for a little more melody.

Heh... I'm sure many of you won't like that, but I don't know, I love it. But I do love the soft, beautiful and articulately played pieces too. It's just a nice change of pace sometimes.
