    Clearly I need to get a life, or a gf...or perhaps both.[​IMG]

    You really are phenomenal, Koji. I love Scriabin (still far too obscure, IMO), and you play his work brilliantly.

    I'm sure Thracozoag, that you have heard of them or listened to them at some point, but I thought you might appreciate the band Muse, whose pianist is also quite good.
    Check out "butterflies and hurricanes" where he samples Rachmaninoff.

    Edit: Also "Space Dementia" which is themed around Rach.

    I listened to the Tchaikovsky with my mouth agape -- three times.

    Thanks for posting these, Koji. You're truly amazing.

    Strangely enough, I first became familiar with that piece listening to a rare recording of Keith Emerson playing live at the Filmore with the Nice, the band he was with before he gained renown with Emerson, Lake, & Palmer in the '70s. Imagine that piece played on a Hammond B3 organ through Leslie speakers and backed by drums and bass, and you begin to get an idea.

    If you're game to take requests, Liszt's Funerailles would be my top choice.

    I've seen him play in real life, and even if you would've stuck with it, you would never reach his level. Sorry, he is THAT good. Also known as: Pianist Envy.

    Very cool, thanks for sharing! I used to play (obviously, I was not as good as you), I haven't touched a piano much since I got out of college... One of these days I'd get myself a Steinway or Bosendorfer... [​IMG] One of these days I'll encoding the tape of my junior recital and post it on YouTube, hehe, great idea...

    Koji's suit is a beautiful blue DB Kiton.

    Do you like it my off-white RLPL jacket and H&K white with blue checks cutaway collar shirt with oh, so-slightly-skewed double Windsor knot?

    Jon.
