Flight of the Bumblebee... sped up

I wonder if that's artificially sped up (with some technique that doesn't also increase the pitch)? Some of the shots of her head and hair while she's playing don't look very natural.

Oh wait - maybe that's what your subject line is implying? :oops: Though really, I've heard versions by various famous pianists that are almost up to that speed, for real.

soundhound can chime in maybe...?

The jerkiness of movement may have to do with internet video quality. I've seen a pianist who played Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 that fast and it was on Jay Leno show a few years ago so it's certainly doable.

:shhh: Um no, I wasn't implying that, but I didn't notice anything unnatural about her head/hair movements. I'll have to watch again when my body heals up a bit.... (ow)..
