Piano Shed...

by Chris Randall
 





Sometimes, in piano recitals, the performer feels the need to drop some science. I personally prefer players that are more concerned with emoting than playing perfectly (think Glenn Gould in his most pilled-out versus Horowitz, if such a comparision was possible), but now and again it's kind of cool to see someone give a clinic. I wouldn't want the CD or anything, but when he launched in to that first flurry, I was like "fuuuuck...."

I have a recording of Harry James playing Flight of the Bumblebee (trumpet, natch) that is just jaw-dropping.
