ThePianoGuys - Michael Meets Mozart

This video excites me. I've watched it several times and have to thank this blog. I am mesmerized by the way they use their entire instruments.




This version of Paradise is gorgeous!



From their YouTube channel...."Our vision is to create music and videos that inspire & uplift. We want to take that music to the world and make a difference. We like to put a new spin on classic stuff and a classic spin on new stuff. Whatever we do, we put our heart and souls into every note and frame." I believe it.

  1. I think they just put Cold Play to shame with their version!! YES YES this why I LOVE MUSIC!!! Taking it to new heights and it just keeps getting better and better.

    Ok what kind of cello is that guy playing? Is he playing a cello or is that some kind of instrument I have never seen before?

    1. I think it's an electronic cello. My son has an electronic violin that looks similar. All the wood becomes unnecessary. I love how their music incorporates both the old instruments and the new!

  3. Wow! That was awesome! I love their layering and looping work. It gels just right and hits the sweet spot. Very nice find! Thanks!

    I often daydream about what past figures of fame would have done with modern tools...
    What would Mozart have done with a synthesizer and a loop pedal? The nameless artist(s) from the Lascaux caves with a box of crayola crayons? etc. : j

    1. It does make you wonder. If only we could bring the old masters in for a jam session :) How interesting would that be? Would they climb on board, or scoff at our new tools?
