Turkish Pianist Creates Stunning Mash-Up Of “Phantom Of The Opera” And Bach.

Sometimes it feels like we’ve heard everything when it comes to music, but then talented artists like AyseDeniz Gokcin remind us that we’ve barely scratched the surface.

AyseDeniz is a Turkish classical pianist who’s become famous for her classical crossover pieces. In fact, her mash-ups from this year have bridged several genres and left audiences breathless around the world.


She’s mixed Pink Floyd in the style of Franz Liszt and created “The Nirvana Project,” a piano re-working of famous Nirvana songs, in collaboration with Bulgarian music producer Ivan Shopov. But what stands out most to us is the arrangement she released before her 2019 world tour.

The compilation combines Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” with Bach’s “Concerto in D Minor,” and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen. It takes on the dark, dramatic elements of both and merges them into one moody, thrilling adventure for the soul.


In a video posted online, it takes just seconds to realize that AyseDeniz is a wonder to watch. Her fingers fly over the keys as if by magic, and each hand pulls off its complicated part like it has a mind of its own.

She calls her music a journey “creating unique interpretations and experiences in sound,” and that’s exactly how it feels to watch the talented young performer. We had goosebumps the whole time!


If you love “Phantom of the Opera” or classical music, this is a must-watch. If you don’t, check it out anyway. After all, this level of talent doesn’t come along every day!

Watch AyseDeniz in action in the video below, and don’t forget to share her remarkable performance with others.
