Fun link from Anglotopia: Have you seen the Mystery Pianist of Manchester? Go look at it, really. It’s only four minutes long, and it is some really unbelievable piano playing.

Have a great week watching (British) TV!


  1. Wow — the mystery pianist of Manchester is absolutely wonderful! I suddenly want to go back to taking piano lessons after the brief 50-year break since I last tried.

    Thanks for the great link!!

  2. Cardo,
    You’re very welcome! I have now watched that video roughly a million times. I also went and looked up some of the source music–most of which I’d never heard–and concluded that I liked the Mystery Pianist’s versions better!
