I have been trying to play the piano for the last 8 years. I now know how hard it is. Not only does this guy, in my humble opinion, play with supreme command of line and tone, he is blind.
Herewith an excerpt from a performance of his in March of this year. It is Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto in B flat Minor, Op 23.
And then take some more time out and watch this.
Imagine we had not succumbed to the fear inspired by the WHO and then one could be in Tokyo right now watching Uchimura win the gold medal on the high bar(I wrote this before he failed to qualify. Along with Karelin not winning gold in Sydney the greatest Olympic disappointment), followed by some sushi at Giro’s or one of his disciples and then watch Tsuji play the piano. Life as it should be lived. Instead the human race has descended into cowardice, stupidity and gullibility.
