    Beautiful… especially the moment when the piano begins to play all on its own, liberated from the pianist.

    Also, the orchestra seems quite reduced.

    • The Pianist says:

      Yes, it all happened because of a vaccination attempt made on the piano the day before, in order to prevent it from spreading chromatic diseases. It reacted to the homosapiens-DNA contained in the vaccine by starting to play on its own. If one is not careful, soon instruments will be challenging our human supremacy…

    Clever pasticcio and fine playing!

  • Peter San Diego says:

    I like that chamber arrangement of Wozzeck!
