He hit every single note! As if he were the entire orchestra.  :)

Some purists say they hate it, because real orchestras don't have drum kits. But I say, this young man has created his own version of "The Barber of Seville," - an opera, for God's sake! - and is likely turning people on to classical music who would never listen to regular orchestral music. As the disco-rhythm "Hooked on Classics" years ago created their own version of Beethoven's 5th Symphony (Duh duh duh DUH! Duh duh duh DUH!) 

And like how so many jazz singers have created their own versions of standards from the Great American Songbook. If anyone would have told me years ago that Rod Stewart from "Hot Legs" fame would win an entirely new audience with his half dozen albums of jazz standards - I would have said they were crazy. But it works remarkably well. He has said that he always has warmed up with these songs, not rock.

Wait til someone arranges a joint concert between that drummer and this guy:

OMG - That is fabulous! And the minor chord change is awesomely unexpected. Obviously, this guy and the drummer are both classically trained.  Amazing - thanks so much for sharing!

This next one is Frank Vignola's gypsy jazz guitar (aka hot jazz) arrangement of Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Mozart's Symphony 40 in G Minor. Awesome. Don't mind the cute guitar choreography. My cousin sees him all the time in upstate New York.
