    I don't know enough to suggest a video, but my dad was raving about Art Tatum before Christmas and seemed very happy with the CD boxset he then got :)

    Also like Lang Lang, but I'm sure he's far too mainstream for this thread ;)

    Scriabin's infamous "cursed" Sonata No. 6, which the composer refused to perform because he feared its power

    Nothing's too mainstream for this thread - I said all genres welcome
    Art Tatum was incredible - "God is in the house"

    Amazing, but perhaps because I'm a baroque snob :) I never really like hearing Bach played on modern pianos...

    My main difficulty with Lang Lang is that I find he tends to tends to sound as if he's playing in the qualifying rounds for a Piano Demolition competition!

    Pianos are really just overgrown and pompous percussion instruments.

    I'll declare an interest: I play in this guy's band (now, not on this recording). And this isn't his best stuff, but I like what he does with the Latin groove.
