"...[being a role model is] not something that I have ever aspired to be or courted because I think the second that you say, "Oh, I am a role model and that's why I make the decisions that I make," you've kind of shot yourself in the foot. A role model is somebody that does things because of what they believe in regardless of what other people think." - Anne Hathaway
Russian Pianist Boris Berezovsky (1969) is one of the most virtuous piano interpreter of our times. One can tell that for him the borders of keyboard possibilities have not yet been reached. Hestudied at the Moscow Conservatory with Virsaladze and Satz. He brought attention to himself with his daring dexterity at the 1990 International Tchaikovsky Competition and won the Gold Medal straight off. In a film he drives through nightly Yekaterinburg, and improvises with a Band in a Jazz Club.
