‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm’ reworked in the style of Beethoven is a stroke of genius

Read the full review: https://www.classicfm.com/composers/beethoven/old-macdonald-had-a-farm-piano-improvisation/
Crafted by Polish Canadian pianist, Daniel Vnukowski, the reworking retains the main melody of the nursery rhyme, while bringing in all the characteristics that make up Beethoven’s great piano works.

An honour to share the stage with Graham Greene and listen to his remarkable stories of growing up as a boy on Six Nations Reserve.

Aside from his breakthrough role as Kicking Bird in Kevin Kostner's Dances With Wolves for which he was nominated as Best Supporting Actor, he's played everyone from an old Jewish man to a black transvestite. He's won Gemini Awards and the Earle Grey Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Academy of Canadian Film and Television.

Special thanks to Tjalling Photography for the photo.
