    Now ... that's Entertainment humor at its finest ... albeit at little "Victor Borgish" with a good number of twists - especially the Rach hand extensions.

    and now Tchaikovsky

    Here's another one: Tchaikovsky this time - maybe not as refined, but still made me ROFL!

    Ahaha, absolutely brilliant! I must say it was a very refreshing performance and great so see classical music with a touch of humour and showmanship - great find.

    Those are fun; thanks acc.

    I wonder; it seems to me Rach`s Prelude in C sharp minor isn`t that bad hand-size-wise. However, other works by him are indeed impossible for me...

    One of the Grand Dame's of the piano world, Alicia de Larrocha had very small hands but she sizzled in Rachmaninoff interpretations.

    Cheers!
