@Disciple Peter sure, that's a fair take. But then you're producing industry product, not "open art". I would say precisely the distinction between art and commercial product is whether it is openly accessible or not. E.g. I can write an absolute masterpiece of a documentation about Access Control Lists in a Windows Server :p but it's not art because it's exclusive to industry insiders. It's commercial work.

@NowAndrew I wouldn’t say that. All art has an audience, and if your audience is experts, then you have a lot more room to pack depth and meaning in. You create a more powerful piece for some people at the expense of some others.

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.

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.

@Truestm Beethoven has lasted for hundreds of years due to his beautiful melodies and tempos. The music of the great Frank Sinatra will always be remembered. This kid in this video is ruining the Beethoven piece -- and led zeppelin is no good either. Don't defend how this kid is ruining a classic.

Then people like you in a couple hundred years will be be reviling music that era while singing the praises of music from ours. Not because of it’s quality, but because of a false sense of prestige. How do I know this? Because Beethoven had the *exact* same thing happen.

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.

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.

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.

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.

​@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.

@RussCR5187 well, in my opinion, we can arise at "art" level, whatever we want, just if is made by a human being. In this case, whatever discussion is useless. The video question was "it's amazing or sacrilegious?" So we are in the field of the points of view. My opinion (cause it's just an opinion) is that this guy's it's enough creative to mix some wonderful music (that he didn't compose) but maybe is not enough "artist" to write something memorable by his own. About playing skills; for sure he's talented but I think is light years behind Lang-Lang or Trifonov or Kissin. As i said, just a personal opinion.

My sister-in-law is a concert trained pianist. I've heard her play this song, and I thought it was exquisite! But, let me tell you. This isn't even next level. This is so far beyond that. What an amazing, crazy good pianist this guy is. Seriously impressed!

@Thomas Le Guenne agreed. Also, it's kinda chaotic and noisy for me. Totally the opposite of the nature of this composition. I feel it is much more flat and shallow like that, while the original is special.

I saw the genius at work, it was in the playing and composition. It did'nt need the intrusive beat to give it color. Linking that Chopin with the presto fused in an epic theme was mind blowing. It pushed a lot of energy through my sleepy classical circuits and woke up new ones.

Beethoven was before his time and the reason why his music sounded different to his teacher Mozart, was because he wanted to do something different. I'm positive Beethoven would love this!

That was a very interesting twist on the music. You asked if people thought it was sacrilegious or spectacular, I think it is a mix of both. To the classical music purists they would think the first, but to other people who appreciate classical music and can see outside the box, it was very innovative to incorporate a different style and make it work seamlessly.

The Moonlight Sonata is my favorite piece of music on earth, and has been since I was a child. I would not dare presume to speak for my beloved Beethoven, but I have to admit, that like his original composition, this version also gave me chills and thrills...even against my will and while frowning down my nose! I have heard many rock or modern versions of other classical music and have not once been impressed. But I have to stand up and applaud this one!! This improvisation is true genius.

What a concert! I can only imagine how this must have sound live. The speakers of my tv couldn't render the beautiful sounds of these different instruments not anywhere near. So many people attended the concert, who didn't even know Lionel before! And i was sitting here in my room wishing, that i could see this show from close up.😅 This new version of the moonlight sonata is lit!❤‍🔥The piece you played for Andreas was really good too. Whats the name of this piece? Last time Saudade really reflected the pain due to his loss. This time this piece just showed pure gratefulness. 😊I hope everyone enjoyed the concert and the meet and greet afterwards. I totaly would have bought some merch in order to support the people in need too!

They're all lying to you... it sounds just like it's coming thru a TV, when it was played live and even on YouTube via great headphones. I'm not sure why all these people say otherwise. Trinitron sound, frankly.

@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.

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.

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.
