    After our Taylor Swift Coldplay mash-up, lots of people wanted more song combos. This led us to the creation of a cool hip hop/classical mash-up, but again we could not get permission. Instead of scrapping the great ideas, we used them to create an original tune. You will hear influences and inspiration from other artists. Try and guess them.

    On the recording, Steven Sharp Nelson laid down over 100 tracks including cello textures never known possible. Every single sound on the video was made using only the instruments shown: piano, cello, mouth percussion and kick drum. We utilized some cool effects on lots of stuff...for example the U2-style delay on Steve's pizzicato at the beginning.

    The extra string on the electric cellos (the black cello has an extra high string and the white cello has an extra low string) allowed us to cover the full range of the orchestra. The deep bass drum sound is a bump on the body of the cello with a little help from some effects. The shaker sound was created by Steve rubbing rosin on his bow. The record scratch is Steve scratching a quarter on the strings...you get the idea.

    Arrangement written by Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson & Al van der Beek
    Co-produced by Chuck E. Meyers & Jake Bowen

    We owe a monumental debt of gratitude and a HEAVY shout out to Hale Centre Theatre for providing the set, the elaborate costumes, the harpsichord, the descending piano/cello cage and, most of all, the friendliest professional team of stage people in the business! If you are ever in Utah, you HAVE to see a production there: .THANK YOU, AMAZING HALE PEOPLE!

    Story behind the song
    What if the harpsichord from the 1770s hit headlong into the talk box from 1970s? What if J.S. Bach and Jackson 5 met up and just jammed? Would they jive? Can you dig it? These are the kind of far out questions we asked ourselves as we laid down these licks and cut this film. We decided to put together a gig with two wigs in dandy attire and two hep-cats in some funkadelic threads to see if it would fly. (Incidentally, Steve's 1770/1970 alter egos are Sir Reginald von Sharp and Scooby while Jon's are Duke Johann van Keymeister and Phil.)
    Presenting… I Want You Bach – Jackson 5's funky I Want You Back mashed-up with 5 illustrious themes written by J.S. Bach. (See if you can catch them all – winner gets a free disco ball…which will be faxed to you).
    All the sounds you hear were created by the instruments shown – including the words I Want You Back/Bach simulated by a talk box (popularly used in the 1970's, but never with a cello!) Here's how it works: Steve plays cello notes through a micro speaker built into a foot pedal, the sound then travels through a tube and into his mouth where he shapes the notes into actual words. (Google talk box to learn more – it's pretty groovy.) To our knowledge, the likes of electric cello, grand piano, harpsichord, Baroque cello, talk box, and kick drum have never gigged together. Until now. It's totally the battle of the 70's – the 1770s and the 1970s…can you dig?
    Phil is tickling the ivories of a custom-built hybrid grand piano, while Scooby shreds on a custom 5-stringed electric cello complete with a sidecar kick drum. Conversely, Sir Reginald is playing a circa-1700-replica Baroque cello (no why don't you fix it? jokes, please), and Duke Johann is playing an actual harpsichord that was built and designed by Hale Centre Theatre. In fact, nearly everything you see in this video was provided by Hale Centre Theatre – from the sinking Piano/Cello platform down to the disco duds of Scooby and Phil opposite the Scarlett Pimpernel robes arrayed upon Johann and Sir Reggie.
    We filmed this using 4K resolution (a huge step up from 1080p and quickly becoming the new high def), allowing for more freedom and flexibility to zoom in and out of static shots (which helped us create the illusion that two different versions of Jon and Steve were jamming together.)
    Let us know what you think in the comments below! If you liked it – don't forget to flog the thumbs up!
    And if you've read this far into the description you're invited to either an evening of highbrow hobnobbing with Sir Reginald von Sharp and his entourage or a night of sick roller-skating with Phil and his dancing mustache. Please choose a 1770s/1970s alter ego name.

    This is a Drum & Bass Remix of the well known classic tune Michael Meets Mozart. I wanted to combine two different kinds of music and create a sound, which is not typical in the DnB-scene.
    This tune is my second project and it took me a lot of time. I'm still not satisfied, but my knowlegde with reason 5 (my producer software) is exhausted :-).

    I hope you like it and great compliment to the Piano Guys for the awesome Original!

    Story behind the song

    Hello/Lacrimosa (or Chello, as it has affectionately been called in the studio) is a musical experiment bridging 18th-century spiritualism and 21st-century secularism. Imagine Mozart and Adele in the same room in an intense co-write session, quill and pen in hand, respectively. Picturing this hypothetical hangout helped to spark the creative combination of the two.

    Haven't heard Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem? It is a powerful piece of music. Listen here:
    As you can hear, both tunes' divergent traits presented challenges. One wallows in a wide, painstakingly minor 12/8 time and the other drives a poignant bi-polar major/minor common time. One draws its power from the fullness of a grand chorus and orchestra, the other from the isolation of a lone voice and piano. One conforms to age-old counterpart canon and musical theory, while the other is conveyed via verse/chorus pop song parlance. However, they share the same fundamental feeling -- Lacrimosa (meaning weeping or tearful) mournfully bemoans spiritual death, while Hello gripes about relationship regrets. Different centuries. Different realms. Same emotion. Perhaps we aren't as far from our predecessors as we think we are.

    You'll hear towards the end of the tune an attempt by both motifs to meet in the middle as the two textured melodies intertwine. In their respective stories both plead for reconciliation. Neither seemed to find it apart, but together they sing of a second chance.

    The sounds you hear were created by 100 tracks of acoustic and electric cello, an instrument that has been emoting for centuries – an apt candidate for the task of tying together Hellocrimosa (our alternate affectionate title).

    This video was filmed at one of our favorite locations: Tuacahn Amphitheatre, utilizing different patterns and settings of giant mirrors, diffused light, and some very cold fog. How is the camera not reflected in the mirrors? Simple. Magic!

    The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of pianist Jon Schmidt, cellist Steven Sharp Nelson, videographer Paul Anderson, and music producer Al van der Beek. They gained popularity through YouTube, where in 2010 they began posting piano and cello compositions combining classical, contemporary, and rock and roll music, accompanied by professional-quality videos. In August 2016 the group surpassed one billion views on their YouTube channel, which at that time had nearly 5 million subscribers. Their first six major-label studio albums, The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, A Family Christmas, Wonders, Uncharted, and Christmas Together each reached number one on the Billboard Classical Albums and New Age Albums charts.

    Musical style
    The Piano Guys' Schmidt and Nelson perform live in 2002.The Piano Guys draw on classical, contemporary, and rock and roll in their compositions for piano and cello. Much of their popularity among younger fans is based on their mashups of classical and contemporary songs, such as blending Bach and Bruno Mars, or Vivaldi's Winter and Disney's Let It Go.

    Nelson and van der Beek serve as songwriters for the group. The Piano Guys have also covered classical, pop, and film songs. These include: Pachelbel's Canon in D (as Rockelbel's Canon); One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful and Story of My Life; We Three Kings; Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer; Taylor Swift's Begin Again; Home by Phillip Phillips; Swedish House Mafia's Don't You Worry Child; Theme from Jurassic Park; and Coldplay's A Sky Full of Stars (as When Stars and Salt Collide).

    Videography
    The group's YouTube videos show the musicians performing in a variety of open-air, natural, and exotic settings. These include locations in the Utah desert, at the edge of a 1,000-foot cliff, atop a speeding train, and at a beach, among many others. Anderson's goal was to put pianos in places where nobody would expect to see them, thereby generating marketing buzz for his store. In the videos, Schmidt is seen playing a variety of Yamaha grand and baby grand pianos, while Nelson plays acoustic and electric cello. Anderson plans to film Schmidt and Nelson performing at each of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Videos at the Great Wall of China (Kung Fu Piano: Cello Ascends), the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro (How Great Thou Art), Chichen Itza (The Jungle Book/Sarabande), and Petra (Indiana Jones and the Arabian Nights) have been completed.

    Each video typically costs less than $5,000 to produce, as cameras, helicopters, and other production equipment are donated by friends and supporters.

    Most songs are composed of numerous audio tracks mixed together. Occasionally, previous audio tracks are superimposed to imitate many identical instrumentals played simultaneously. For Michael Meets Mozart, Nelson prerecorded 100 cello tracks, including percussion effects he made by drumming on the cello itself. As of October 2017, The Piano Guys have uploaded 76 videos onto their channel. Their cover of Christina Perri's A Thousand Years is their most-watched video, having logged more than 138 million views as of September 2018.

    Personal lives
    Members of The Piano Guys are all middle-aged family men who had other careers before the group took off. Schmidt had a solo musical career with eight albums and seven piano books to his credit. Nelson owned a real estate agency, Anderson owned a piano store, and van der Beek operated a recording studio in his home. After signing with Sony in 2012, all four quit their jobs to pursue their joint musical career.

    All four are devout members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Each of them served full-time Mormon missions: Anderson in Washington state, Schmidt in Norway, with Nelson and van der Beek in separate missions in Korea. The group prays together before each recording session, video shoot, concert, and songwriting session.

    Story behind the song:
    The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic (Youth Orchestra) and its director, Kayson Brown, approached us with this idea. We loved it. It combined two of the things we are working to accomplish -- inviting people to classical music and inspiring young musicians. Steven Sharp Nelson had soloed with the orchestra the previous year and loved the spirit and the talent that the orchestra showed at such young ages (ages 13-18!) Together we developed the concept of Beethoven's 5 Secrets, combining OneRepublic's tune Secrets with melodies and moments from all four movements of Beethoven's 5th Symphony.

    We used 5 different melodies from the 4 movements of Beethoven's 5th Symphony (not including the bridge the orchestra plays in the middle). Try to guess where they are and where they come from!

    What are Beethoven's secrets? He had many. His most prominent secret that he desperately tried to keep from the public and that caused him to be considered extremely eccentric, irritable, and hermit-like was his weakness. He was deaf during most of his life. Imagine that...one of the greatest composers that ever lived could hardly hear. And yet, he wrote his life's greatest works after becoming deaf. He believed that art itself had secrets that had to be forced into in order to obtain art's highest level. There is no doubt Beethoven discovered many of the secrets of art -- people all over the world enjoy them every day. He was a true master of music, blessed by God. This piece and video are dedicated to him.
