The pianist's view of a ferociously virtuosic Concert Etude

Nikolai Kapustin's Concert Etude No. 3 'Toccatina' is really something. Especially when it feels like you're playing it.

Dmitry Masleev piano POV

Russian composer/pianist Nikolai Kapustin loved his classical virtuoso pianism and improvisational jazz (promising combo, huh?). This Etude is a mind-boggling, swing-infused, pianistic tour de force - and with a GoPro camera and the virtuosity of Dmitry Masleev, you can see it all from the performers point of view.  

Smashing chords, cascading lines, leaping arpeggios, and oh-so-jazzy syncopations. And rather terrifyingly, thanks to that head-mounted camera, it's like you're playing it all.
