Valentina Lisitsa plays Rachmaninoff Sonata No 1

The fluidity, the strength, the precision of those hands.

It's as if a tornado passed through a field and erected a cathedral.

And to think that this morning I never even heard of this pianist. There are days that I absolutely love the Internet.


  1. Exquisite in both execution and interpretation! Her style of playing makes me wonder what she could do on a harpsichord.

    THIS is what makes the internet worthwhile.

  2. Her hand motions are fascinating. She is one with the instrument.
