Music should be for everyone and what better way to achieve this than by putting an instrument in a public place for everyone to use.
Those that gathered in a square in Montreal, Canada had no idea the musical treat they were about to get.
Pianist Ariane Racicot sat down and played one of the most challenging pieces of modern music: Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Not only does she play the melody but also the words; it’s hard to believe that just one person is playing all of this and all without any music.
The epic 6-minute piece which changes tempo three times is performed with so much passion a huge crowd soon gathers around her.
Ariane describes herself on her Facebook page as a “piano jazz student at University of Montreal who wants to bring something new with her compositions and performances.”
She has more than 20,000 subscribers on her YouTube page where her videos show how she loves to put her own twist on classic pieces.
When she finishes her epic performance and receives her well-deserved applause she turns around and is clearly overwhelmed by the number of people who have gathered, stopped in their tracks by the sound of her playing.
See her performance in the clip below, she’s clearly a talent we should look out for.
I can’t wait to hear more of this talented musician’s music. Please share and help lift the spirits of your friends and family today.
