Valentina Lisitsa: the Bieber of Classical music goes minimal

Valentina Lisitsa is a classical pianist who credits her current fame to YouTube, where she has uploaded more than 200 videos of her performances. Were it not for the popularity of these videos (Beethoven "Moonlight" Sonata op 27 # 2 Mov 3 - 7 million views; Beethoven "Für Elise" - 4 million; Liszt "La Campanella" - 3 million), she would be, in her own words, "totally dead" in "the age of child prodigies".

Happy 200th, Franz!

Yesterday was Franz Liszt's 200th birthday. Celebrate by watching performances of his most famous piece, the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, by Tom & Jerry, Woody Woodpecker or perhaps Bugs Bunny. Or maybe you prefer something less cartoonish?
