Watch this pianist reenact one of the most famous musical moments in cartoon history...
When the animated cat decided to play Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 in the episode The Cat Concerto, a comedic battle naturally broke out between the pair.
Dressed as Tom in a black tux and cat ears, the virtuoso gave a real-life rendition of the animated clip...
Pianist perfectly syncs her playing with ‘Tom and Jerry’ cartoon
Playing this fiendish, Romantic rhapsody with such accuracy and panache is no mean feat.
But to do it perfectly in sync with a cartoon at the same time? Now that’s some serious skill.
Unsurprisingly, The Cat Concerto is still considered one of the best Tom and Jerry cartoons. It even bagged the cat and mouse an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.
