Piano virtuosity tapas? Kaleidoskop, and what a Kaleidoscope!

Wow, I discovered this video recently performed by pianist Jennifer Lin in Monterey, California in 2004, and wasn't sure what the piece was -

It contained so many familiar elements, but seemed to change as if you were switching tv channels from one to the next,  it wasn't until pianist Jennifer Lin at the end mentions that is Josef Hofman's Kaleidoskop, which happens to be opus 40, #4, which makes sense, it's a mixture of virtuosic works and perhaps favourites of Hofman. 

If you can identify all the influences in the pieces do leave a comment!?
