Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    Publisher's note: If you appreciate the musical and cinematography creativity of the extra talented Piano Guys, as much as we do here at BCN, you can easily access all of their segments here.

    The Piano Guys are back for Christmas, 2015, and we are blessed to bring you a generous helping of their rare and fun, and most talented videos. These four guys do it all: They arrange, video capture, produce, and perform their vast array of melodies, and even more, they often transport Jon Schmidt's Baby Grand Piano, and more easily, Steven Sharpe Nelson's various cellos to whatever exotic location they need to tell their melodic story.

Continuing the premise that the Piano Guys will travel with their heavy equipment anywhere to prove a melodic point, we have their version - the best I've heard - of the theme song from the mega hit animation "Frozen": Below.



Never shy in producing these leading edge videos, with cellist Steven Sharpe Nelson playing multiple cello arrangements infused into one multi layered uniquely original arrangement, we offer the Piano Guys' version of this wonderful Bach classic: Below.
