As someone who knows nothing about classical music, its history, its norms, its context, etc., this simply sounded awesome and made me feel awesome. Isn’t that ultimately what counts?
Nevarl Hace 15 días
Thanks for this video WOW. I played many years ago. I always felt that old school kept classical music shoehorned the classics. I read a study going back to the original metronome standards which was incredibly fast. That is the beats per minutes for the movement of music. They checked the metronomes of the time versus modern metronomes thinking that the calibration was off. It was not. They investigated the orchestras and the pianos of the time. The pianos were not modern without a huge sound board and the size of the orchestras were small more like a chamber size which is a lighter sound. This is a good and forward focus of music.

I would even argue that an art piece that 'can't' reach 'general' people, without inside knowledge of the piece and/or genre (no matter the medium), isn't really art at all.

As a classically trained musician myself, it even took me a while to realize what I'm going to say: We tend to think of classical music as traditional and old. When Beethoven was writing this, though, it wasn't old, and it wasn't traditional. When classical composers were writing their music, it was contemporary. Yes, the stuff that's survived was certainly more intellectual than Justin Bieber, but it was still contemporary. They were experimenting with new chords, harmonies, and sounds. Haydn's "Symphony No. 94 - 'Surprise'" was specifically written to scare the crap out of listeners. Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture"used actual cannons as part of the percussive sounds. So, no. This isn't sacrilegious at all. If Beethoven were alive today, and heard this, I think he'd think it was pretty cool.

@D Well said! You clearly know that Beethoven sadly lost his hearing, but when he could hear, he cared about beautiful melodies -- and these harsh sounds are NOT beautiful. You understand!!!

I was a performing pianist and vocalist before the pandemic…walked away from all of it and reinvented myself.

And you know this, HOW?? Truly believe all you want, but a fact or two would be nice. Have you ever created anything? Anything? a piece of music, or a fine art painting? If you had, you might realize that someone else reinterpreting/innovating on top of your discovery might not be so "cool." An artist's creation is personal; if someone else wants to innovate, let them take the artistic chances and live or die by their creation...for my money, and my creations, it's hands off, brother.

I don't think Renuar would want someone painting over his works. To take a piece that has survived hundreds of years and considered a major work of art, and then to paint over it like this only lessens it. Granted, he is a fantastic artist, and unfortunately his art functionally requires him to conform to the existing music, but since he does seem to be able to write some, let him write his own new masterpieces on his own.

Not really, though it's tempting to draw that stretch of a conclusion (but probably some leeway considering what is defined as the sensibility, temperament etc. of a rock musician). Mozart would have been more likely to approve, but mainly on personal performance principles, if you will, as we extrapolate from historical sources. But really, who knows. Liszt, on the other hand, with all the transcriptions and documented proclivity toward improvisation...more likely to approve, but again - wk. Why is it that folks are much more inclined to say B, or M, or L are the rock musicians of their day - very rarely, the jazz musicians. Evidently not cool enough. Not relatable enough.

It was pretty common in the time of Mozart and Beethoven to improvise on other composers themes and take those themes places musically that the composer never would. Of course it would have been awesome back in Beethoven's day to see him perform and take a popular Mozart theme and hear Beethoven take it musically improvisational my somewhere Mozart never could have imagined.It would have been cool to hear Beethoven play anything,but hearing his interpretation on a popular theme written by another famous composer would have been great as well like The Barber of Seville by Rossini for instance.

sebmaio4 Hace 9 días
This is not a collaboration. This is not like jazz musicians voluntarily getting together to blend their individual talents. Beethoven created an individual masterpiece and this is some guy who decided to give it an uptempo, modern feel hundreds of years later. You may love it, but don't call it a collaboration. Think to yourself a hundred or two hundred years in the future when "some guy" decides to recode The Beatles, or The Who, or whoever your modern "bias" is, and played their music as if it were funeral dirges. If you were still around then would you realize how much the unique original sound had been distorted and the original meaning had been betrayed and obfuscated and misunderstood.

@Thomas Le Guenne Although I prefer a crossover pair, the microphone was an ideal distance to capture the harmonics and hall reverberations. I think that the recording engineer did not expect the dynamic range and the recording started clipping. It also sounded like a digital recording at an insufficient bit rate. Recordings such as this sound impressive at first, but soon cause audio fatigue to the listener.

​@Raven Angelo Murawski Fame is not valuable in itself. There are about 50.000 or more absolutely unknown pianists all around the world who can play Beethoven and Chopin better than this guy. I'm only one of them. This guy is also unknown for the 99.999999% of the world. But these 50.000 don't play dubstep, therefore that thousands of people who love dubstep don't know them, and (I'm afraid) 95% of dubstep-fans don't know neither Beethoven nor Chopin. I think it because if somebody likes classical music, probably will not like dubstep. If somebody likes and understands Beethoven and Chopin, probably will not make dubstep from their music.

@Jim Harvey Are you, by chance, a fan of Weird Al Yankovic..? Don't misunderstand me here- I'm obviously joking, because I am not the type to go around insulting people. But I think my point is made, regardless of the satirical statement herein...😉☮

@Biggie Smalls You have a right to your opinion, but so do I. I completely agree that music is to be experienced differently by all, that is at the very heart of what art is meant to do. Part of its' unwavering appeal. But a masterpiece is a masterpiece, and to change it, (especially in the case of a score that has stood the test of time) undercuts, or at least distorts, the historical significance of it- as well as the composers' vision for it, imo. Out of respect for Beethovens' legacy- I believe that it should stand, as it is, and frankly- was MEANT to be. I understand that art is conceptual and that artists evolve, and I support said evolution- just not in this particular instance... 🤯🎹🎶

5:44 I think this moment sums up the performance. One man stands to give you a standing ovation, another leaves quickly. You know what they say about art? ‘Make them feel SOMETHING. Whether they like it not at least they felt an emotion’. Bravo

Classical music is the only musical genre that works with every other genre and makes them perfect. That's why classical music is universal, and the best.

I think the original composers would be honored by your renewal of their original vision. They were on the cutting edge of music for their time, and now here you are doing your best interpretation of being on the cutting edge of music and yet still paying homage to the greats. Loved it my man.

In Beethoven's time, it was common to improvise and make variations and to impress like this, so it is quite possible Beetoven(who was an excellent improviser) did something similar himself in concert or just for fun at home. Excellent performance.

@Richard Knox Yes Beethoven also channeled a dark side, among many many other things.
Richard Knox
Richard Knox Hace un mes
Although this isn't actually improvisation, it's a written remix, I do believe Beethoven would have loved the complexity and darkness. Beethoven definetly channeled the dark side of things when he composed. I strongly believe he had an inner darkness that he could only get out through music. I think he would love this, it very much channels the same spirit in all of Beethovens music.

Beethoven probably would have liked it. He was quite the rebellious one, not at all sticking to tradition. He loved epic music and you can hear that he's basicly the godfather of the romantic epoch in his later masterpieces. Most likely Beethoven would have made a variety of music including modern electronic and metal today. He was a virtuoso, a composer who pushed the boundaries and he was always willing to implement new ideas, that's why I'm pretty sure he would have loved this modern interpretation on his timeless music.

No words... Epic. Just epic. Leave me a message when doing a tour through germany. I'd love to feel that sound live. Thank you for such emotional sounds, for being able to be part of your passion.

What would make this just slightly more epic is a very lightly sounding chorus every time the sound builds and it switching off the piano to a chorus in key moments.

Why would Mozart and Beethoven not approve? this sort of performance breathes so much life into music and this is exactly what composers want: life.

@Anne POITRINEAU I think that's what they were saying: No, composers want 'kocain'

Wow! I'm a pro orchestra musician of 25 years and I am LOOOOOVING this!! Way to go!! I actually think Beethoven might actually approve if he knew what 21st Century technology can do for music. Heck, if he lived now, he could well have written the first Dubstep Sonata! Keep going and all the best to you!
