Vladimir Putin conquers the piano

Russia has a long history in modern times of producing great pianists, think of Richter, Vladimir Horowitz, etc. Putin has a blackbelt in Judo.  Putin has been in the news recently with Ukraine, Crimea. I can imagine the Premiere relaxing after long discussions and deliberations with a bit of piano. Here it is.

 All in the name of good causes and charity, here's a video of Vladimir playing the piano. One finger left hand technique to assist the right hand.

 Here Vladimir Putin jazzes it up with a rendition of Blueberry Hill

Piano Prodigies on the Ellen Degeneres Show

I love watching piano prodigies in action, in just shows the potential of awesome talent at such a young age. This particular video has had over 3 million hits, I think due to Elias' eccentric personality and clowning around. Anyway he or she performs Carl Emanuel Bach's solfeggietto briefly as well I might add!
