A harmonious mish-mash of 61 melodies from 33 classical composers that…really works.

What if Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and 29 other legendary composers came together to create the ultimate work of genius?

They probably never could have agreed on anything, but luckily musician and YouTuber Grant Woolard spared them the trouble.

Using tiny composer portrait heads as musical notes on a stave, Woolard created an incredibly precise mix of 61 different classical melodies, by 33 composers.

From Mozart and Haydn to Bach – both JS and CPE – it’s a wonderful mish-mash of some of the classical music world’s most beloved composers and their most hum-able melodies.
