I'm hoping everyone was answering you at the same time and didn't mean to "over educate" you. Don't let that keep you from asking questions anyway. And, I hope that was your pianist.

7. Was the pianist young, or middle aged, or older? Was the music Asian-sounding, or European classical or new wave-ish?

It appears there are many male Asian pianists possible on YouTube, getting a more narrow definition of the act would make it easier to find.

Did it seem to sound more classical, or modern western modern or new wave contemporary ?

Do you recall if the pianist was old or young? Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.,?

There are so many Asian pianists in the last several decades, all excellent.

Interesting older Japanese music:

8. I've struggled with the idea, myself, of "Asian" and "Oriental" since "Asia" covers such a vast area, so many cultures!

Absolutely overwhelming!

"Lotsa lunck: to us, right?

On edit:

Why, you can even see Asia from Sarah Palin's house, she says!
