I didnt know it was possible to be hot and actually good at something difficult :P

haha just kidding great performance!

What I dont understand though, is like the full orchestra is doing a heck of a job as well, why does she get the special treatment?

Yes great performance skill talent etc etc, but I have to say I dislike this piece played on a violin, just doesn't sound right :S

Toccata e fugue is my favourite Bach's piece, but you should listen entire length to fully enjoy it. And of course, in plain organ. One man show.

I like how she is smiling during the performance. Most classical performers are so uptight.

#2 IMHO she does nice modern improvisations of classical pieces and is generally a fun and happy looking person during such performances that is why she became quite popular aside from her brilliant skills. And YES she is hot.

#2 its like.
the lead singer of a band where the lead vocalist gets the majority of the credit even though the band did equally as much work.She's basically the lead vocalist in the whole orchestra :)

I have enjoyed her music for a while now. My favorite piece from her has got to be Classical Gas played on an electric violin

It is just like #3 said. This piece sounds a little awkward with violin due to the extremely sharp sounds produced specially at the beginning.

Who's Vanessa Mae?

This version is total crap. How could they do this to this great piece of music? Toccata itself is interesting enough you don't need to destroy it with pseudo-classical tunes from a Skoda-commercial.

Sorry. T&F in Dm should -only- be played on a pipe organ.
