Mystery Pianist Delights Crowd With Rousing Rendition Of “Pirates Of The Caribbean” Theme.

A pianist performing in a public metro station in Barcelona, Spain.

Travelers entering the Barcelona, Spain metro station had no clue of the treat they were about to experience. A nondescript young man wearing torn jeans and a sleeveless hoodie took a seat at a piano on a balcony overlooking the escalators. The pianist played with an unexpected air of professionalism with the hood covering his head.

In a video viewed by more than 3.5 million people, the pianist wows the crowd with a complex rendition of music from the “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The original music is by Klaus Badelt, but we think this pianist may have added his own twist.

Don’t let his young age fool you, this pianist isn’t a stranger to performing. He is world-class pianist Peter Buka and he performs all over Europe. People stop and stare as Peter’s hands fly across the keys, creating a beautiful medley that echoes through the station. Peter frequently plays in public spaces, bringing amazing music to people everywhere.
