Impressive indeed. I was getting all hot & bothered by Hope Solo earlier today. Must be the Women's World Cup buzz, the soccer camps the local University is hosting, and the fact that my lovely wife is a former soccer player. A perfect storm!

Yes, quite rightly. Such a combination of impeccable physical dexterity and the mental discipline to have such a tune perfectly committed to memory is not less than astonishing.

I'm grateful that my mother bought me a guitar when I was 8, I do sorta wish I'd somehow been drug to piano lessons. Piano playing is a big component of the actually successful musicians, whether piano is their primary instrument or not.

Helen Grimaud has an interesting biography on Wikipedia. It must be strange to have synesthesia.

"Grimaud was born in Aix-en-Provence, France. She is descended from Sephardi Jews from Corsica on her mother's side and from Berber Jews on her father's side,[1][2] though her autobiography Variations Sauvages suggests a Christian upbringing. She has stated that as a child she was often "agitated".[3] She discovered the piano at seven. She entered the Conservatoire de Paris in 1982 where she studied with Jacques Rouvier. In 1985 she won first prize at the Conservatory and the Grand Prix du Disque of the Académie Charles Cros for her recording of the Sergei Rachmaninoff Piano Sonata No. 2. In 1987, she launched her professional career with a solo recital in Paris and a performance with the Orchestre de Paris under Daniel Barenboim.

At 21, Grimaud moved to Florida, United States, and later lived outside New York City. After some time spent in Berlin,[4] she currently resides in Switzerland.[5] She is known for her passion for wolves, which she studies and raises. She now divides her time between her musical career and the Wolf Conservation Center, which she co-founded with her then-companion, the photographer J. Henry Fair.[6] She also experiences synesthesia, where one physical sense adds input to another, for example tasting words, or in her case, seeing music as color."

Like certain viewings of "Fantasia" or "Dark Side of the Moon" laser shows.

I agree. I learned flute as well as guitar.
The advantage of learning piano, IMO, is that you see ALL of the music. I see a single line, and can follow that single line. The piano player sees ALL parts, and their inter-relations.
