The video note says his name is Izumi Tateno, and he only has one other piece on YouTube, apparently...and it's the Scriabin Nocturne for Left Hand, Op. 9 No. 2 (link). The video notes on that one says he had suffered a stroke before recording this Nocturne. You can't tell. :D

Ah right, failed to read the notes :x
A well-known name. He has recorded a lot of off-core repertoire like Sibelius and Palmgren.

just a little OT, but i have a record of Van Cliburn performing the Scriabin Nocturne in Moscow and it just about brings tears every time....

By the way (Cliburn in Moscow), enjoy:

I know that you mentioned not being interrested in Ravels left hand concerto, but...I just wanted to say that for any serious piano student who wants to develop their abilities, this is the perfect piece. You'll discover so many things that you thought were not possible to do with one hand alone and you'll develop much better control and power for the left hand. I learned it very recently and it was a great, inspiring experience.
When he wrote it, he studied the Saint-saens etudes for the left hand. They are not fabulous pieces and are much easier than the concerto, but they are probably a great introduction to the left-hand repertoire.
