Watching Other People Play the Piano

Since we're all off-topic around here lately, with chickens and cats and using books as coasters, I thought I'd share one of my newest time-wasters: watching other people play the piano on Youtube.

The woman (her name is Irina, and I think she's Polish) plays beautifully, but what I like best is the way her kids come into the room halfway through and stomp on each other, and she doesn't miss a note. What she's doing is so impressive: making something beautiful while sitting there in her sweats with kids goofing off all around her.

The video of her playing Handel's Sarabande in D minor is also terrific, but there are no kids in it.
