This piece of music seems to be largely considered a satire or a parody rather than a legitimate piece of music, and if you click on the picture and enlarge it you’ll see ridiculous things written on the score like ‘light explosives now’ or ‘release the penguins’. I took about a year of piano when I was a kid so I’m not musically literate enough to know whether or not playing this would actually be feasible. It’s apparently some sort of phenomenon however and people are trying to play it on YouTube.
I found a blog post that is supposedly by this man’s nephew http://lostinthecloudblog.com/2010/03/13/john-stump-composer-of-faeries-aire-and-death-waltz/ so you can check out his story there.
This is a video of a group of people who actually play the piece. The first half of it is a history of the piece, so if you want to skip that the actual playing starts at 3:50.
This is one of the attempts. A few people put the notes through computer programs, so you can look those up if you so choose, but I find this to be more impressive. And it’s actually a really cool song! Like I would listen to it in my free time cool! I don’t know if it’s accurate or if it even resembles the sheet music (illiterate) but I don’t really care. It’s good.
