The Piano Guys – Video: Michael Meets Mozart

1 Piano, 2 Guys, 100 Cello Tracks

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 Piano Guys – Michael Meets Mozart

These quotes by Mozart are as applicable today as they were back then:

How sad it is that these great gentlemen should believe what anyone tells them and do not choose to judge for themselves! But it is always so.
– Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart –

All I insist on, and nothing else, is that you should show the whole world that you are not afraid. Be silent, if you choose; but when it is necessary, speak—and speak in such a way that people will remember it.
– Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart –

To talk well and eloquently is a very great art, but that an equally great one is to know the right moment to stop.
– Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart –
