Editors’ Notes

The Piano Guys are further proof that viral videos can lead to record deals. After posting clips that mashed classical movements into well-known pop songs, The Piano Guys' YouTube channel became one of the world’s most popular. This led to them signing with Sony Masterworks, which released their eponymous 2012 album. Cellist Steven Sharp Nelson has an uncanny knack for sewing together melodies, as evidenced in the opening “Titanium/Pavane,” where he and pianist Jon Schmidt brilliantly weave David Guetta's "Titanium (Feat. Sia)" into Gabriel Faure's "Pavane." But blending songs is just one sliver of The Piano Guys' talents. In “Over the Rainbow/Simple Gifts,” they interlock the 1939 song from The Wizard of Oz with “Simple Gifts,” a Shaker hymn from the 1800s (which was also used by Aaron Copland in his ballet Appalachian Spring). Between cello and piano, Nelson and Schmidt work in bouncy reggae rhythms to give the song a spry and summery energy. Saving their best for last, a cover of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" features five musicians playing one piano.

Together they produce musical and video gems that mash up classical themes with pop songs that have made the group's YouTube channel one of the most visited on the planet. The group had its beginnings in St. George, Utah, where Anderson owned a piano shop. Schmidt walked...
