Just stumbled upon some so-called 'Shred' videos on Youtube. I never knew about this craze. I know it's bad taste, but I had to laugh at them, especially the funny noises in the Lang Lang video (which is otherwise pretty far out).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysHZ9g0UA98 (Lang Lang having fun with Traumerei)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5zh3Pme7PY (Zimerman mauling Chopin's 4th Ballade)

I've seen the Lang Lang one before, but not the Zimerman one. Funny! Zimerman sometimes does that floaty thing like Lang Lang, and always looks so stern. This video really mocks that image!

Now, does anyone besides me recognize the music at the end of the Zimerman video? 8)

haha, nope. A clue: it's video game music. Maybe your kids played it at some point; it's from a very popular game.

Oh haha - right in front of our nose! :lol: (this is really cracking me up!)

And yes, my kids did have Super Mario. I think they got the music from that goofy song I'm trying to think of though...

Yeah, it's definitely close.

Edit: Damn, now I noticed they pointed out what music he was playing in the video notes. I don't feel so special any more. :(

Sure you are special. It wasn't Chopin, and yet you noticed :mrgreen:

I know, right? I watched the Lang Lang video but it didn't entertain me (after the clapping, anyway) because it's hard to destroy Schumann. Anything to spice it up.
