The dummy keyboard bit in that Face the Music video was impossible for me.

I'm listening to Mozart Piano Concertos by Gardiner on Spotify, who knew they had such a large range of classical music. Honestly there's not a bad concerto in the set - so many masterpieces.

Shostakovich? I know the first one definitely is. He's another one I need to explore, but like Peter said, a lifetime's not enough.
