I had the true pleasure last night to see Christopher O'Riley play piano.
He's in town to play with the Houston Symphony this weekend

Just a brief background...The guy has a broad repertoire that ranges from music of the English Renaissance and French Baroque.
His honors include top prizes at the Van Cliburn, Leeds, Busoni and Montreal competitions, as well the Andrew Wolf Memorial Chamber Music Prize.

I'm not sure what any of that means, but for 1 hr I saw him play the hell out of Radiohead songs in front of about 150 people. The passion he put into those songs was reminiscent of Thom Yorke himself...

If he's coming to your town, I would highly recommend him.
His new CD is called True Love Waits and it's piano interpretations of his favorite Radiohead songs...
