Drake and Tchaikovsky Mashed Up By Classical Composer:
You’ve never heard Drake sound like this before.
This musical experiment comes courtesy of composer Steve Hackman, who’s blended other popular artists with the revered pieces of classical music that he doesn’t want people to forget, form Beethoven to Mozart. Speaking with Quartz, Hackman said that “I have so many peers and friends who are lovers of music and rabid consumers of music, but weren’t trained in classical music, and just don’t have the awareness and access.” He added that, “if you love contemporary music, why wouldn’t you want to know where it all came from, going back to Bach and Palestrina?”
Here, he mixes Drake’s track “Emotions” with a famous Tchaikovsky horn solo. Check it out below.
