That Radiohead Piano Guy: Christopher O'Riley

A fun interview with one of WTB's favorite pianists Christopher O'Riley can be found online right here. Among the interesting tidbits: what's on his iPod and what he wants played at his funeral. More importantly, O'Riley reveals the secret to his pianistic bag of tricks:

"For me, it’s Prokoviev’s Second Piano Concerto — everything I ever wanted to do on piano is in that piece, all my pianistic bag of tricks. I find that more and more, because I’ve had my fingers around it for so long, those shapes fall naturally to my hands. "
