I miss Dick Cavett. Back in the 70s he was the smartest guy on TV. I searched Youtube for his show with Robin Williams - that was epic, but only little snips are available.

Mastery is beautiful to watch, especially when done by a master who affects no pomposity or bloviation in their explanation. The way Peterson's hands move up and down the keys was a little like watching birds in flight, or a world-class gymnast vaulting off the pommel horse. Poetry in motion.
And yeah, @Boundegar, the older I get the more I realize how awesome Dick Cavett was.

I can't find it now but if you see the clip of Christopher Plummer talking about the trials of being the SECOND best piano player in his high school (behind Peterson) it's a great story.

I think Oscar had a leg up - his sister Daisy was a helluva piano teacher.
