Earlier this week, I had the excellent fortune to run into a friend I met last year. I don’t use the word “amazing” very often, but he is a genuinely amazing pianist. It’s not that he did things with the piano I hadn’t seen before, it’s that he did things I’d never even heard of before. Yesterday evening he put on a performance, at least part of which I know was impromptu, that was musically spectacular.
To describe the man as talented doesn’t half do him justice, and ironically, unlike many individuals who aren’t anywhere nearly as gifted, he’s an intelligent and personable guy who is remarkably down to earth. I highly recommend checking out his music if you happen to have any appreciation for the piano.
