Mr. Rogers is perhaps the nicest man of the modern era :D

I love Mr. Rogers. Never appreciated him until my own kids started watching him. He had many famous musicians on his shows.

I saw Watts perform Rach II in Manchester in 2001, it was an excellent performance with not one wrong note (I know every single one - believe me!). The funny thing was, that at certain times in the piece he would stamp his foot in difficult passages when not pedalling, it wasn't really distracting but added a sort of intensity to the performance, as his soles made a loud clicking sound on the wooden floor.
At the final short cadenza in the 3rd movement before the final recapulation of the main theme, he stamped his foot so loud and grunted as he hit those A and G octaves - almost like a cry of success that he had pulled it off without making a mistake, and then *WACK* onto the C with the rest of the orchestra! It was phenonemal!

Listen to the 34:30....who could that be? Who could learn a concerto in 3 days?


Liszt sight-read the Grieg Concerto. I think Grieg said he played the Cadenza too fast. :shock:
