Thanks to youtube we can still watch some of the brilliant musicians of the past. eg this one of Rubinstein playing - his technique is breathtaking, but makes me want to give up!
I didn't realise the Morecambe and Wise skit is probably based on this performance.
Any more examples of passed performers?

So many brilliant performers. Yes, the Greig was the M and Wise inspiration, featuring as I recall Andre Previn?

Can't do linkies but my favourite performance is Art Tatum playing Tiger Rag. Phenomenal.
