A wondrous hour!

Had the operation on bbc 2 not been one I really wanted to watch I would have watched Piano. I swapped between channels and watched them both, just missing the final part where the winning pianist was chosen.
Hope someone will help me out here. I really want to know. I loved 92 year old Harry but also the lady with the pink hair.

I was dipping in and out, too. One or were mildly interesting, but I didn’t hear anyone really worth listening to.

Jay (I think that was his name), the boy from the Isle of Wight won. He is the blond haired boy who did a classical rap mash up. I thought he was brilliant, and so clever. Lang Lang said he'd always wanted to invent a new genre of music, and here is Jay.

Thanks for letting me know

I thought it was a fabulous program. I always stop and listen to people playing instruments in the street. They are so talented.

We loved it, including our 14 year old DGD. The 92 year old man played just as my Dad did, a style from the 30’s/40’s.
I preferred the lady with the red hair, who used to entertain professionally, and who sang beautifully at the end.
Lang Lang is wonderful.

I am looking forward to watching this on catch up. I too always stop and listening to street pianists. I managed to pluck up the courage to play the piano in our station concourse. These Foolish Things Remind Me of You had people hurrying to get away from me😁!

Which channel? I love piano music, I dabble myself, we still have one, cluttering up the living room.

It was on Channel 4.

Well worth watching. Next week, they are featuring Leeds station.

I really enjoyed it. Our train to London ends up at St Pancras and it’s always entertaining to hear the piano being played.
Glad they’re using a different station next week, a bit of diversity.

Just a passing thought, Claudia's husband is rather handsome, shame she didn’t dance😀

It was great wasn't it and I'm so pleased that Jay got through. I thought he was brilliant and also really liked the the mother with the autistic son who played her own composition, it was very moving.

Greyduster Thu 16-Feb-23 12:39:24

Whilst I am in awe of all the pianists involved I’m afraid I didn’t think Jay was a worthy winner, but to be honest none of them swept me off my feet. Poor Lang Lang looked like a fish out of water. I can’t help thinking he didn’t have a lot to do with the result.

It’s Wednesday, 9.34
Is anybody else moved to tears?

What a weird post Grandma70 ???

MiniMoon Wed 22-Feb-23 21:59:23

Wow. Wasn't Lucy wonderful. She is a special person. I am so glad they have chosen her.

Ro60 Wed 22-Feb-23 22:08:57

I didn't see this last week - was out with the 'Girls'. Just texted my DD to say I was watching - she's appreciate it too & was so moved, was actually going to start a thread! So pleased to see one already here.
Lucy, Yes amazing.
The Piano is now added to my Series Links.
