What if Bach had written Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’?

This is exactly how ‘Last Christmas’ would have sounded if J.S. Bach had composed it (with a little help from Mozart).

This musician has combined Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Mozart’s Divertimento in D and Wham!’s pop Christmas staple to create a surprisingly beautiful cello arrangement of ‘Last Christmas’.

It’s pretty much just a cellist in period costume (doubled), alongside some delightful harmony and counterpoint.

The arrangement and performance comes from Kjell Magne Robak, with camera work by Ragne Vicotria Stauri.

Bravo, lads.
