Russian piano dude dubiously doesn't admit to ever experiencing stage fright:
Interviewer: Do you ever get nervous?

Interviewer: Not even a pulse? Not even ....
Russian dude: I just concentrate

Uptight Russian piano guy, no surprise, also doesn't like hip hop music:

Russian dude: [chuckling] No, I don't think there is any other music than classical
