The late Kobe Bryant learned to play Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonatamain
We have been sent a 2014 video of the basketball star, tragically killed with his daughter yesterday in a helicopter crash, playing piano in an arrangement of the Moonlight Sonata, which he apparently loved.
The producers say: We had a very narrow window of time to shoot this promotional piece with Kobe. He arrived in the conference room at the Graves 106 Hotel in MN at 6:45pm and 20 minutes later he was gone.
Kobe told reporters that he took piano lessons in order to play the Moonlight for his wife, Vanessa, whose favourite piece it was.
