    He's entitled to his opinion and I'm afraid no one can judge whether his opinion is right or wrong, if his opinion is anathema to you, then I suggest you don't hunt out You Tube posts like that. YouTube, afterall is open slather for anonymous nobodies to make unproovable ascertions.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Hi Sandri,

    Welcome aboard to a great site aka MIMF. Just as an example, Lang Lang from China plays Chopin, Madoka Inui likewise. It does not depend on where the interpreter comes from. Someone I once knew said that Japanese people cannot understand the music of J.S.Bach - I calmy then invited the twit to witness on DVD how Masaaki Suzuki and his Bach Collegium touched the hearts and minds of the audience.

    Cheers,

    CD

    To me: unless there are physical/mental reasons involved anyone can play anything with proper training, education and practice. Biggest limitations for pianist maybe well the size of the span of the hand in-order to reach the intervals involved as an example.
