Virtuosic

A word that catches my ear and eye whenever it appears: virtuosic — meaning in music, a composition that lets performers show off their skills (like certain incredibly-hard Paganini caprices for the violin). More generally, virtuosic refers to something associated with virtue, skill, or another appealing-to-me term, areté — the Greek concept of excellence, goodness, achieving one's full potential. "Be all that you can be" self-actualization, in other words. An appealing concept!
