The Piano Guys Use Technology To Create World's Largest Piano

Check out this creative video where The Piano Guys use technology to create the world’s largest piano and move that piano all over the world!

At the beginning of the video, we are informed that it was filmed using the iOS and Android app “AR Pianist.”

Jon, the pianist, and Steve, the cellist, used this app to create a fun video of them performing their rendition of ‘Für Elise.’ And how cool is it that they can still play together even if they are not in the same room at the same time. The technology that we have available to us is so impressive!

Steve shares on their YouTube page about the first time he heard Jon play ‘Für Elise.’

“Steve (the cellist) here. Jon and I have been playing together for many, many years -- even long before The Piano Guys. I’ll never forget the first time I heard Jon whip out his own playfully deranged arrangement of one of the most well-known pieces ever written,” Steve says. “I was backstage getting ready to join him for the next song and he began the first notes of Für Elise. I admit I cringed a little, like many I had heard it far too many times.”

Steve continues. “But then all of the sudden it wasn’t Für Elise anymore, it was a piece of music that caused me to involuntarily tap my foot and grow a goofy grin on my face. I fell in love with “Für Elise Jam” -- because Jon wasn’t playing it to mock Beethoven or try to ‘improve’ on Beethoven (no one can do that) -- he was sincerely just having fun. And the audience and I could feel that. I remember thinking, ‘we need more of this.’ Perhaps that was one of those propitious premonitions of things to come.”

“And now we’re at 10 years with the Piano Guys, releasing our 10th album. And this song had to be part of it. Oh, and I hope you don’t mind that I added a little cello. After all, there’s always room for cello.”

What a wonderful story and what a creative use of technology for this performance! We hope you enjoyed it!
