Timed perfectly to coincide with the latest instalment of Star Wars, Player Piano has released a special medley making use of the instantly recognisable music composed by John Williams.
The medley is combined with coverings for the piano including the Millennium Falcon and R2-D2, together with several costume changes during the piece. There are costumes for the sith lords Darth Vader and Darth Maul.
Player Piano is a well-established Youtube channel, and creators Sonya Belousova and Tom Grey have attracted several million viewers with their arrangements of popular tunes from films, video games and pop music. Belousova, the pianist in the Star Wars medley, has also arranged Queen’s famous hit Bohemian Rhapsody, and even the Super Mario theme. If you never really were a Mario fan, you can listen to a version of the Doctor Who theme instead!
Belousova is also an internationally recognised pianist and composer. Her music has been performed at several international festivals, and she received an award from the Russian cultural ministry for her musical abilities. Some of her arrangements for the Player Piano channel have been performed in concert as well.
