    The same for me, nothing consciously enters my mind to affect my mannerisms (or lack thereof). It could be our mirror neurons talking. We imitate our peers whether we like it or not.

    Of course, facial expressions or other quirks should never be a source of self-consciousness or stress, as they are quite helpful in focusing a pianist's energy. Somehow, a grimace can contain what would otherwise be an extraneous motion of the playing mechanism. Indeed, the sound is what matters.

    P.S. What's your name again?

    hehe...see? Her name is Amelia. :) I had a great-great-aunt named Amelia. We called her Aunt Melo...

    Amelia, if you want your quote tags to work properly, you have to disable HTML, either in your profile or in the check boxes at the bottom of each post.

    yeah, every so often when i go for an exam or go to a music shop, people will ask what my name is. When I tell them, they always go aww...that's such a sweet name. My aunt/ grandaunt etc. has the same name.

    :lol: I believe it - some names just get generational implications, and Amelia is one of those. It goes in the same category as Gertrude, Mildred, Henrietta, and quite a few others.

    I think Amelia is prettier than the others, though - the camellia is a very common flower where I live, and one of my favorites. ;)

    Well, the original topic ranges from depressing to annoying, so the diversion was enjoyable. ;)

    My God! I used to play that one and not even close with the same technical and musical quality. Makes me look like a fool ;).

    I think we all (to varying degrees) look the fool near the likes of her! Oh well, I don't let it get to me...much.

    Thread resurrection!

    I'm too lazy to go through the thread and see if this girl has been posted before, but I have seen musicblau commenting on her videos (I didn't look at many of them, because I didn't find anything quickly that made me as happy as the first one). I love that etude.

    Very nice, I love this "heavy" intonation towards Chopin music ( see A. Rubinstein version of op. 27 no. 1 Nocturne, for instance )
