I think it's sublime(the performance and the piece). I felt like I had to share this with other members.

Gee, he makes it sound much better than when I play it! \:D

Very wonderful performance with lots of expression in the right places. I've heard this piece murdered by so many pianists including Van Cliburn!

Beautiful piece and beautifully played. Shows that smaller pieces can be very effective when interpreted and performed beautifully.

Wow, don't know how I missed this video, being as big a Kissin fan as I am. Thanks for the link.

Nice, good to see his performance of the 2nd Liszt/Pag etude was also uploaded.

His playing of the waltz is superb. I also like the video of his playing "Rage over a lost Penny. Gaby Tu

If you go to


you can see around 120 videos of Kissin. On page 7 is his legendary performance of the Chopin Concerto in e minor at the age of 11. Also, check out his performance of the Grunfeld transcription of Strauss waltzes.
