Here are two of the finest musicians the earth has ever produced playing together.
I dare you to tell me what could be finer than to take this in.
For those of you, like me, who are really good musicians, you’ll understand the astonishing talent it takes to pull this off.
First of all, the “song” is Mozart’s “Turkish March,” by itself a challenging piece of music. It was written for piano.
However, the instruments in question are the guitar (Tommy Emmanuel) and the balalaika (Aleksei Arkhipovsky).
I exaggerate not in the slightest when I say that from 1:14 to 1:30 are sixteen seconds of some of the finest human accomplishment ever done.
The coda is beyond delightful. Great and mighty musicianship, and showmanship, pulled off by supremely talented musicians, the likes of which the world is not likely ever to see again.
