An Orchestra's Beethoven and Kanye West Mashup You Never Knew You Needed
A musical masterpiece.
What do you get when you cross an arguably classic modern album with a classical orchestra? “Yeethoven,” a Kanye West-Beethoven mashup in which Yeezus is re-imagined to the sonic stylings of the most influential composer of all time. Over the weekend, the Young Musician’s Foundation debuted the musical masterpiece we never knew we needed, arranged by composers Stephen Feigenbaum and Yuga Cohler. Watch above as the 70-piece orchestra mixes Beethoven’s “Egmont Overture” with Ye’s “New Slaves,” and listen to the rest of the concert here.
