An ‘awristing’ performance?

Recommended viewing for all pianists, students, teachers, and amateurs alike. Ok, it’s basically very funny, but just look at the technique. The relaxed flexibility of those wrists – now THAT is something to aim for.

Seriously, there is a lot can be learned from this clip. With such relaxed lack of tension in any part of the body it becomes more possible to to get close to Marc-Andre Hamelin’s ideal “to be able to express almost any adjective through one’s playing”.
