I have a nagging feeling that, while you duly and credibly hit the keys, the sound is MIDI-generated. It sounds too impossibly smooth and perfect. You cleverly insert a different image or change camera angle when something hard is going on,
like the insanely fast loops with crossed hands. You wearing an earphones makes me think you're playing along with the computer.

Sorry to be suspicious but I think this is a fake. I could be wrong. But not that it matters ! Because this is a classical site and we don't want this kind of stuff here anyway.

Is this Bacos 2.0? :D

OK, this is NOT a "performance" video.

- Take a look at his other videos and the sound quality is nowhere near the same
- There is NO ambient sound. There is at least 2 others in the room moving around and taking video/photos.. we should hear something
- Yes the headphones are a dead give away. Didn't see that the first time I viewed.. good call tech.

To his credit, I think he did play this.. Bacos style and then put it in a pretty package.

This video may belong in a press packet but not here.

Your other videos (Up, etc.) are the type we like to see here.. ..
Except that one where you are singing. No offense, but stick to the piano! :D
