Star Wars soundtracked by Mahler 6 sounds absolutely awesome

Some genius has removed the music from a key Star Wars scene and replaced it with the opening of Mahler’s Symphony No. 6.

Unsurprisingly, it sounds totally awesome:

It’s similar in character to Williams’ Imperial March, but somehow it’s even more evil. We approve.

Next: The Phantom Menace is totally transformed by the addition of Berio Sequenzas in all scenes with Jar-Jar Binks.
