You've probably seen Vidas' yesterday's live practice video of BWV 548.
I've seen it too. While at school teaching kids harmony I checked my phone and here it was.
When I went to practice later to church, he suggested that I should record my piece as well. He said it would be a good review before our recital.
So Vidas set up a tripod and his phone and started recording me.
Before I started playing he said, that no matter if I made any mistakes, I should not stop.
I didn't understood why at first.
After about 18 minutes when I finished Vidas asked me how I felt about it.
I said OK.
Little did I know that all that time Vidas was broadcasting live my playing on Facebook.
When I finished playing, 180 people where already watching it, reacting, commenting and sharing it.
I couldn't believe it.
I hope you will enjoy the replay of this video too.
I'm glad I didn't stop.
