Check out a new video with the most overplayed piece in the world

I have been avoiding this piece ever since I have played it for the first time at about 12 y.o. There is a certain amount of classical pieces that are so over-popular, that at some point it might seem that a piece has no particular artistic value, but just an endless profanation potential. Some established pianists invest in such impression as well unfortunately, pushing their interpretations to the absurd level of cheesy expressiveness, or mindless virtuosity (actually usually both: first for the middle section, second for the faster ones). From this perspective this interpretation is just an attempt to see how this piece works by itself, when a performer still tries to react on music and follow it, but with as little show-off as possible.
