Although you complain about him butchering the song you cannot seem to spell words right then in fact butchering them. Personally I love the track and thought my $1.29 was well spent.
Energetic, refreshing performance
This isn't your father's Chopin, and if that's what you want, you're probably better off with a more traditional and familiar performance. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, and indeed, there's a great deal to like. Lang Lang's performance of this well-known warhorse is neither eccentric nor idiosyncratic, as several other reviewers would lead you to believe. True, he doesn't adhere to a rigid metronomic approach, but I find his playing to be invigorating and refreshing. The recorded sound is excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I loved Lang Lang's interpretation...to me he takes a song that is very familiar and shows me a different way to look at it. Thank you Lang Lang for doing this for UNICEF! Awesome!
