Oh suuure, I can do that! :roll:
ha ha , wasn't that fun to watch.
I don't care what he plays. He certainly is 'fun' to watch, if you know what I mean. :wink:
I once heard someone (can't remember) play Mozart's Alla Turca with the right hand, and I think a Chopin etude with the left. I was so amazed that one could do that, but I suppose if you practice it like it is one piece, then you could get it together. (not me, though - that's for sure)
What, only TWO etudes at one time? Hamelin does three....
Wow! People like him must have an extra brain or something. :lol:
Funny how he crosses himself in the beginning. And I think I heard the no. 2 scherzo near the end.
I dabble around in doing stuff like that, but not nearly at that crazed pace! This trick I learned was to play Maple Leaf Rag with each hand going a different tempo. The effect is hilarious.
I wouldn't even know how to put songs together to make them sound good. Guess that would be an interesting project.
It would make sense to choose two pieces that have the same key and similar harmonic progressions. My only advice from there is choose two really simple songs, like Mary Had a Little Lamb and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or Frere Jaques. Things could gradually grow in complexity with practice. It's fun but don't ever expect to duplicate Sergio's madness.
Maybe it helps if you have a split personality. :idea: :lol:
(I know...shut up time. Think I'll go watch Sergio again. Ooh la la!)
ha ha, somebody has a crush
Yes, that's a good idea, it'd be some great harmonization practice. I don't think I would expect myself to even begin to compete with Sergio.
Make it a game, who knows, decades of playing games can lead to great things when it comes to piano.
Just for you pianolady.

Oh yes - Thanks, Pete. That jump-started my day very nicely. :wink:
Thanks for sharing this. That young fellow has a technique nothing short of amazing! I looked him up on the web (having heard his name but not knowing exactly who he was), and what I found was enormously impressive. http://www.sergiotiempo.com/
glad you liked it.
While watching the opening stunt, I went on to watch all three of the Tiempo interview videos there. Great stuff!
Okay, it's quite a stunt, but where's the music in that? Godowsky's studies on Chopin's Etudes are beautiful pieces that have a definitive, intrinsically musical value that goes far beyond mere technical prowess. Tiempo's "study" is basically the study in thirds with a weird, convoluted accompaniment that adds nothing to the piece. Even Hamelin's triple study has a certain flow to it, not to mention variety.
