This Piano Guys video has over 26 Million views, combined videos have over 211 Million views, so I’m late to the party but they have a US tour happening now. The first video below is Five Guys One Piano.
The second video from The Piano Guys features piano soloist Jon Schmidt and Cellist Steven Sharp Nelson performing on the Great Wall of China. Stunning video! My favorite.
Hailing from Utah, ThePianoGuys became an internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They have more than 55 million views and 350,000 subscribers to their YouTube channel. But just who are ThePianoGuys? Actually, there’s only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. These classically trained musicians create sophisticated new arrangements of everything from Beethoven’s 5th Symphony to Coldplay’s “Paradise,” often weaving seemingly disparate pieces together to create something totally new.
