Tina S Cover of Ludwig von Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, 3rd Movement

Categories: Music

By Tina S / YouTube / August 17, 2016

If you don't know this piece, you'll think this is just another awesome, mind-blowing electric guitar solo.

If you do know this piece, as Beethoven wrote it, you'll be blown away at the talent of this young girl (only 17 when this was published on YouTube).

I don't know what to say about this.  Despite the fact that there are no dynamics (okay, it's a rockin' distortion-laden electric guitar solo - I get that), it's obvious that Tina S is formally trained and exceptionally talented (this is why I'm no longer a musician, if I ever was one).

She plays with virtually no expression (even the appearance of boredom around the 0:30 mark).  I did catch a slight grimace at one or two points, and a closing grin of satisfaction just as the video starts to fade to black at the end.

I think Beethoven would be proud of this young lady and her talent, so I've made it my Cover of the Week.

As impressive as this is, I would suggest you also listen to the traditional recording (my favorite) by Valentina Lisitsa:

Beethoven "Moonlight" Sonata op 27 # 2 Mov 3 Valentina Lisitsa.
