Watch: this violist played Bach on the Great Wall of China

It may have been a blustery day, but that didn’t stop this viola-player from hiking to the top of the Great Wall to play some beautiful music.
Lech Antonio Uszynski is an international concert violist, who travels the world to spread his love of classical music. On a recent trip to China, Lech hiked up to the top of the Great Wall (no easy feat with a viola on your back!) to play the Sarabande from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1.
Despite the slightly wind-impaired acoustics, Lech plays the Sarabande beautifully. And where better to play your instrument than against the breathtaking backdrop of one of the most famous landmarks in the world (and a new Wonder of the World, no less)?
