Is this taking the concept of covering rock songs to a whole new level?
"Turkish pianist Aysedeniz Gokcin has become an unlikely sensation after her recording of legendary prog rock band Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick In The Wall' was picked up by various online media across Europe, turning her rendition into a surprise hit.
Gokcin, who completed a Master's degree at the Royal Academy of Music last year, has released an EP of Pink Floyd covers entitled Pink Floyd Lisztified, inspired in part by the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth and by his legendary rockstar lifestyle."
The album has taken off like a shot, apparently.
The pianist was inspired by Liszt's legacy, which includes his showmanship and the fact that he toured back in his day, to audiences as large as 3,000 attendees. And she loves the music of Pink Floyd. So there you go.
I listened to the track online, and the jury is still out as to how I feel (luke warm at the moment); certainly innovative. Nothing predictable about these cover versions. :)
Her version of "Another Brick in the Wall" is at the bottom of this link, if you're interested.
