Game of Thrones rhapsody

By Lizzie Davis

One pianist (and GoT fan) has rearranged the series’ iconic music in the style of Brahms, Rachmaninov – and as a waltz

Pianist Edoardo Brotto was inspired by the phenomenon that is Game of Thrones to create a fantasy on the theme tune.

The music for the series is originally by Ramin Djawadi, but in this video Edoardo imagines how the music might have sounded if first Brahms and then Rachmaninov had written it.

And it closes with a darkly lush waltz. Sit back and enjoy… 

Here’s the full video
