A little music to lighten the spirit.
From Youtube comments which I've verified:
I wonder if people have any idea at all how difficult this piece is to play on the piano, especially with such pristine articulation as Sokolov demonstrates? The piece was actually written for a two-manual harpsichord where the hands don't run into each other since they're on separate keyboards. This performance is nothing short of astounding.
If you would like to hear the composition played on a double harpsichord, as the composer intended, you can hear it below. Isn't music wonderful?
