Classical music's most recognisable symphony, as you've never heard it before...

Think you need a full orchestra for a performance of Beethoven's most famous symphony?

A17-year-old Polish guitarist and producer – Marcin Patrzalek – has other ideas. And he makes an exceptionally strong case with his virtuosic arrangement of the symphony's opening movement on acoustic guitar.

Superb stuff, Marcin.

You can get the sheet music of the arrangement and his recordings on his website here, and do also subscribe to his YouTube channel.
