The Bottle Boys (previously) challenge themselves to play something really fast by performing Johannes Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 5.
While brainstorming which song to play we found that we had made all too few interpretations of classical pieces of music which can be quite challenging. So we chose one of the most virtuosic pieces of classical music and made a bottle interpretation of it: Brahm’s Hungarian Dance No. 5. :)
It was quite hard and extremely fun to play, since there are a lot of changes in tempo and dynamics throughout the piece. The most well-known interpretations of it are played by a symphony orchestra lead by a conductor who makes all the interpretational musical decisions. So we had a lot of fun practicing to play this piece as "one mind” like a (bottle) chamber music quartet. :)
