Rachmaninov was a great Russian pianist and composer of the 20th century, Ed Sheeran is one of the 21st century’s best-selling artist.

But it turns out Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini goes perfectly with Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’.

The brilliant young pianist Ji Liu created his own mash-up of the two works. And amazingly, these two famous melodies work really well together.

Both Ji Liu and Ed Sheeran are nominated for a Global Award – you can watch the whole ceremony live from the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo tonight from 7.30pm right here.

Ji Liu's latest album, Fire and Water, is out now.
