Themes on a Sonata

A very well done parody of a Beethoven Piano Sonata, using the famous whistling tune from “Bridge Over the River Kwai” as a thematic subject:

The variations on the theme are really wonderful, and are filled with references to Beethoven’s work.  And of course, the last minute of the performance is just fun. It’s incredible how, using only musical variation, he is able to be so humorous.
