La Campanella is one of my favorites! Here Ukranian pianist, Valentina Lesitsa, performs it as an encore. She has such effortless technique! Here’s a bit from her bio:
Valentina’s current home is in rural North Carolina where she finds refuge from her hectic travel schedule. Valentina jokingly calls herself a “redneck pianist ” because unlike many of her peers she makes her home base not in a major city but in North Carolina’s beautiful countryside. She shares her home with a jolly menagerie of four concert grands, two cats, a three-year old son, and her partner in life and piano duo ( in married and musical life ) Alexei Kuznetsoff. On rare occasions when she has some free time home she enjoys organic gardening , restoring her? old historic mansion and cooking Italian. Most of her “free” time however is devoted to practicing and learning new pieces. Music is truly her biggest passion.
