WOW! It rocks! Great pianist. He does wonder with Paganini's theme.Thank you for Saturday Night Music, Sean. May we have it again?
I love it Sean!
Fazil Say is a musical genius ... :)
Claude,glad you enjoyed Omnium's 'Saturday Night Music'.As for your question: Knowing myself the answer has to be - maybe. Or not. :)Jams,a heavenly couple are Paganini and Say / one brightens the earth, the other polishs the sky.Nevin,yep! :)
Very jazzy, almost swinging, and technically amazing.
Stan,I admire his temperament and virtuosity. Ever watched his hands performing Mozart's 'Turkish March'?
Sean, I just did - thank you! When I learned this piece I used to play around with the rhythm and tempo, but I never took much licence with the notes. Although I prefer the original, Say's interpretation is impressive and interesting.
I just watched him, too. I wouldn't dare improvising on the classics as he does. But I found him vertiginous, and very exciting because of the freedom he takes to interpret and give a new meaning to a well-known composition. Of course, he has the fingers for it. He is so happy playing. He gives me joy...
Stan,yes, I tend to stick with the original, too. However, it's just amazing to him playing.Claudia,yes, one can see his joy when performing. And - at least it happens to me - this joy jumps over.
