One of the greatest songs of our time has to be the epic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by rock-band Queen. As one of the most complicated arrangements, perhaps ever composed, not many people attempt to take on the musical extravaganza. But this woman decided to take it on in public and passers by were amazed by her skill.
Sitting at the public piano in Montreal, Canada, Ariane Racicot began to delicately tinkle the keys, capturing the attention of passers by within seconds. I think it’s fair to say that most people would recognise the tune of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ within just a few notes.
The famous Queen song goes through three different transitions throughout the song, varying in tempo and intensity with every change. The song is not for an amateur as the complex arrangement puts the best of pianists through their paces. But it didn’t seem to be a problem for Ariane, who played without any sheet music to read from.
