At the end of the day …. “Rock Meets Rachmaninoff”!!


~~February 1, 2015~~ 

Ending the day with a strong, inspiring musical piece blending two styles: classic and rock.

The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek. They gained popularity through YouTube, where they posted piano and cello renditions of popular songs and classical music. Schmidt and Nelson’s music is accompanied by professional-quality videos shot and edited by Paul Anderson and formerly by Tel Stewart.

Jon Schmidt is perhaps one of the most relevant pianists of our time. This is a brilliant adaptation of Rachmaninoff. Another impressive work from The Piano Guys.

Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff  (1 April 1873 – 28 March 1943) was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor. Rachmaninoff is widely considered one of the finest pianists of his day and, as a composer, one of the last great representatives of Romanticism in Russian classical music.

~Rock Meets Rachmaninoff~

Story Behind the Song

“When my son was starting his band at 15 years old, he liked to show me guitar and drum discoveries he found on YouTube. Having never played in a band myself, I now appreciate the coolness of things like double bass pedaling and guitar sweeps because of him. Rock meets Rachmaninoff combines 2 of my favorite musical influences:

Rachmaninoff and my awesome son, Spencer.”
