I want to ask a professional pianist: is the sequence in the following YouTube videoclip logical and/or played well?

Asked by luigirovatti (2826points) October 30th, 2020

What I mean is, is the sound on following video clip played live, instead of being recorded and played upon the video (kinda like what singers can do in playbacks)? What’s more, tell me anything you might catch unusual, like the sound being out of sync with the pressing of the fingers, whether they’re using a black key when they should’ve used a white one, whether they’re using 1 and 3 instead of 2 and 4 as can be read on a sheet music for finger numbers, etc. I mean, everything is welcome. The YouTube clip is this:

It’s most clear in 0:30–0:32, 0:38–0:39, 0:49–0:51, 1:07–1:10, 1:14, 1:16, 1:18, 1:32–1:33, 1:36–1:38. Thank you in advance for your help.

I’m not a professional pianist and barely an amateur, but I think I see what you mean: the hand movements do not appear to match up to the notes being played.

I wouldn’t expect a proficient pianist to be bound by sheet-music guidance for fingering, because accomplished artists can adopt their own techniques; but this might be an editing problem, in that the music is being played by someone other than the actor onscreen, and you’re not supposed to notice any discontinuities.
