An evening pause: Contrast her firm style of playing with the relaxed style of Valentina Lisitsa here. Both play great, but do it in such different ways.

    Very nice playing. My piano teacher, graduate of Curtis and Manhattan schools, teaches to keep your hands close to the keyboard; those big gestures take your hands out of position so that you risk coming down to the wrong keys.

    Honestly, I found Valentina Lisitsa to distracting to watch.
