Shine - Flight of the Bumblebee

From the Oscar award-winning true story of piano prodigy David Helfgott, in this scene "Shine" shines the brightest.

I am not affilated with Momentum Films nor do I own the rights to this clip. I saw a similar clip dubbed in another language, so I put it on here for those few who still speak English. ;)

Plays it better than Helfgott in any case...

Author Rohan Fox ( ago)
Usually in piano movies the actors are not pianists so they cut to
different shots when the piano is played or don't show the fingers, but
that is not the case here, David Helfgott is an incredible pianist (and
actor) even if they used another recording, although I don't even know if
they needed to. I'm a pianist, and to get that kind of finger dexterity
from point zero would take several years practise if you're a genius,
serious respect.

I can't play La Campanella especially well, but I can play it. As for
Fantasie Impromptu, I can play the first passage (never bothered with the
rest) but I could never manage flight of the bumblebee. I know those two
songs are harder than the bumblebee, but I have difficulty with it - I
suspect my fingers are too large and clumsy. Fantasie Impromptu is similar
to Bumblebee, but it's easier for me to play because the notes are further
apart. I hope that made sense and I'm not just rambling...

Author Joseph Jaspers ( ago)
I'm skeptical if you've actually played La Campanella... as its considered
an incredibly difficult piece even to high level professional pianists...
and if you can even play fantasie impromptu than flight of the bumblebee is
well within your abilities.

Pianists wouldn't dislike this... I can't play bumblebee, but I could play
other songs like Fantasie Impromptu and La Campanella without much
difficulty; these videos encourage me to try harder...
