Fingerman can play anything, fast or difficult.

 

His charm and velocity conquer audiences across the universe, his looks and flamboyance attract the wildest fans, his stories and legends bring the wildest broke outrageous guesses.

 

It is said that the Devil admires his abilities and even the angels fall for his talent. Some even swear they see sparks of fire among his fingers, that they are ignited by magic. Surely contemporary audience are attracted to flowery titles such as House of Fingers, fastest player alive, hottest musician ever.

 

Fingerman is wise. He knows their secrets ­ It is not about music. It is about the looks, the fingers, the velocity, the excitement. It is to fulfil our emptiness by superfluous vanity.

 

Introduced by Faust's legend in Liszt's Mephisto Waltz, Fingerman goes wild by Kapustin's three concert études in Jazz style, before finding nuances of colours and dance in Albeniz and Ravel. Connected by the Gypsy's tune in Horowitz/Bizet's Carmen, the legend of virtuosity prevails on Volodos/Mozart's Turkish March. Fingerman’s death is foretold in his finale : Stravinsky's Petroushka. Fingerman serves a purpose, hates it all. He asks, “where are our musical moments?”
