Piano's Funniest Moments 2: James Rhodes and the X-Factor (Blumenfeld's Etude for the Left Hand)

I couldn't believe this when I saw it, James Rhodes is truly breaking boundaries and bringing classical music to a new audience. Perhaps he'll get X-Factor fans interested in playing the piano, does that work vice versa? Classical pianists interested in the X-Factor...perhaps or perhaps not, but anyway here is the video and it's great entertainment. The piece features Blumenfeld's Etude for the Left Hand, opus 36 (sheet music link).

Here's a more 'conventional' performance, take us away James!
