Benjamin Zander on music and passion

Ok, sorry for posting another talk, but you all HAVE to watch this. It's inspiring and truly amazing, and Zander's musical interpretation is wonderful.

Wow! That was awesome! I laughed so hard at the deceptive cadence bit, and he's so right about the "one buttock playing". LOL! I actually find myself often sitting on the corner of my piano bench when I play.

I love that Chopin piece he played - even before his explanation. I always felt a sense of longing in that piece.

I've been playing a lot of pop music on the piano lately but that video made me want to go back to some classical.

Beth- definitely! I loved how he explained the piece in such an engaging way, and it really inspired me to listen to more classical music.
