Incredibly beautiful playing. I've rarely heard Chopin played like this.

A lifetime of experience—Szpilman was 85 when this was made—distilled this piece to its essence. He doesn’t fawn over the music. Rather, it’s a performance of refined and direct simplicity.

Wow. That was beautiful.

Also, I had no idea that the movie was based on the real life of this man.

Thanks for the video...really enjoyed it. I also noticed a tremolo lesson by Pepe R on the index page which I watched and will try his technique when I practice tomorrow...thanks again-can't believe how much I've been learning on this forum.

I concur! This forum is fantastic!
I don't want to play like other guitarists; I want to give voice to the song of my own soul.

This forum contributed to saving my life or at least preserving my quality of life. To make a long story short, I was having sleeping problems and I discussed it on this forum and the members helped me solve the mystery of not being able to fall asleep. My pool heater was not venting correctly and I was breathing in CO in the evening and I wonder how serious it would/could have gotten. I could have passed out while in the pool and sank to the bottom...imagine my wife's surprise- how sad she would be.
Regards and welcome to the forum. If you have an issue make a post and we'll all comment on it. But only if it's interesting. :D
