COMPOSER VIOLIN CHARADES (but we can’t play the composer)

COMPOSER VIOLIN CHARADES (but we can’t play the composer)


What is today’s video about? This is about another version of violin charades. Yes. Convey everything with violin playing. Now. The topic of today’s violin charades is… Composers! – Is that right? Ok.
– Yeah. – I was just checking.
– I was like… – Does Brett know?
– Yeah! I was like… Oh, wait a second. So basically we gotta guess the composer. There’s one, uh… Caveat… If you will, which is you’re not allowed to play anything from the composer. – Oh, yeah, yeah, of course.
– Okay? – Cause that would be too easy. Yeah, okay.
– Because that one’s too easy. But! So… You’re not allowed to play anything from the composer. If you do play something from that composer by accident, it’s minus one point. – Ooh, no! This is so hard!
– Gotta be careful. Scissors, paper, rock. Scissors, paper, rock. Scissors, paper, rock I want to play first. – Alright.
– Because I like playing first. Oh, this is going to be messed up, you can’t… You ready? I have a good one for this. Well, he’s dead. D, E… Ooh! Beethoven! Chopin! Telekinesis. – Ooooh!
– Bzz! We might have to explain to the viewers – how you got that.
– Oh, yeah, okay. I accidentally thought, how do you get another composer just play it in the same period or the same country. Chopin. Polish. Polish. And yeah, Wieniawski was Polish. Yeah, yeah. Okay, um… Aw… Aw, man… It’s tricky. This is… Handel? Vivaldi. Ah! Wagner. – Brahms! Okay, nice.
– Yeah! German, the Bach. Play it in the same period or the same country. – Handel!
– Yeah. This is so dumb… Okay, uh… Dvora… Dvorak! – Is that right? Yeah.
– Yeah. I was playing Jaws, that wasn’t Dvorak. Yeah, yeah. He wasn’t playing the symphony. Shostakovich! It’s not Prokofiev… Concerto no.2… Shostakovich… Prokofiev… Rostropovich… Uh… Uh… Um… No… No… Um… Um… There’s another… – Uh… What’s his name… Stravinsky!
– Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. – Bach!
– Yeah. Yeah, cause Bach… Queen of Sheba. Oh my god. And it’s like all the wrong composers. Oh! Ooh! Someone’s gonna get it wrong, And be like, “oh, is that the composer”. Um… Vivaldi! Oh, no… – This is too easy.
– So that’s officially the baroque period now. Okay, um… Paganini. Liszt! Yeah! Handel. Haydn. – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
– Haydn. God damn it. Tchaikovsky! Yeah! Concertos! So dumb… Okay. Oh, god. Handel. Haydn. Bach. Purcell. Pachelbel. Haydn. Vivaldi, no. Come on. Um… Play it in the same period or same country. – Mozart! Mozart.
– Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Aww… Okay. Nah, nah, this one’s gonna be hard. Um… Dude, I don’t even know what this guy wrote. Strauss! Oh. Oh, Mendelssohn! Beeth… Schubert! – Schumann! Yeah!
– Yeah! I was just thinking of style. Oh my god. Mozart. Queen of the night. What? Classical. Opera composer. Yeah…Um… Wagner! Yeah. – Wagner. Actually?
– Yeah. Opera. Yeah. – Oooh!
– Aw… Okay. Uh… Here we go. Sibelius! So dumb… Someone who doesn’t know the context of the video – will be like…
– What the fu**? – So confused.
– Oh. So that’s Bruch… So it’s probably either Mendelssohn – It is? I love how Bruch and Mendelssohn are paired, and Tchaikovsky and Bra – Um… Sibelius. It’s the levels of playing. Oh, this is something different, ready? Okay. Penderecki? Aw, damn it. Um… John Cage. A dead Schubert. Yeah. What’s a dead Schubert? Oh, I thought you just said it? – Schubert?
– Yeah. But you played Schubert. Oh, fu**!! – Oh fu**!!!
– Minus one point! – Oh yeah…
– Bro… – Why did you play Schubert?
– I don’t know, my brain just froze. Next one. Oh, okay. Here we go. Um… Debussy. Debussy… Tzigane. It’s so bad… Yeah. Okay, okay, so I got this one Are you ready? Bro… – Shostakovich?
– Yeah. I was gonna play Harry Potter. Oh my god! – Bartok.
– Yeah. Okay. Holy. That scared me. It was not Mendelssohn… Brahms… So we already did Brahms. Wieniawski? This is definitely some guy that wrote concertos. Aw, man. Okay, um… Dvorak! C. C. CC? CC… A. CA? What is that? Oh. Oh. Saint-Saens! If you can’t play it, play it backwards. That was genius! Okay, here we go. B, E, F, G. H? E? What the… Oooh! Wait, wait, wait. Bro, what is that? Ooh! Oh, Ohh! – Mahler!
– Yeah. Da Da Da Da…. So bad… I found a hack to this game! Here we go. Oh, this is easy. – Ravel.
– Yeah. – Dude, that was…
– We’re going to finish this! – Last one! Last one!
– Oh, we got this! Oh, okay. This is… Oh, this is messed up. Imagine you are playing that. Strauss. We did it. Bro, that was so dumb. Smash the subscribe button. Practice all your pieces backwards. Yeah, practice all of them backwards. That’s the lesson to be learnt.

  19. I knew the context of the video and it still made me confused.

  20. 0:56 Why do you guys put rock at the end?

  21. I'm a little confused. Are they guessing based off how the pieces are similar? He said same period or country, but I don't see how that would help.

  34. 8:15 Bretts lil anime noise😂

  35. Look at Brett at 4:29 xD

  36. If you can(t) play it normal,
    You can play it backwards

  37. A dead Schubert.

  38. Fun fact:
    In Germany there's a h instead of a b (the German b is a flat h), so Bach was able to play his name on the piano.

  39. Just checked out your merch. Would like to see "if you can play it slowly, you can play it quickly" possibly with a little bumblebee! 😁

  40. 9:41 he said the name right next to him

  44. 1:23 umm do you mean tELepAthY?

  45. The first time Eddy's actually answering

  46. When u say ur favourite violin concert is from tchaikowsky and people who think they have to do like they are good at music ask "which concert of him" an you are like "ummm okay…..forget it"

  47. Omg Brett is amazing at guessing😂😍

  48. For Mahler play frere Jacques 😁

  53. 8:48
    Never heard of a voilin before…

  54. For Liszt I would play smash mouth.he looks that lord farquat

  55. 1:41 famous composer Carl Marx

  56. 7:15 Brett turns into a child who is admitting to his parent that he broke the vase.

  57. Why couldn't Mozart find his teacher?!?!?

    Because he was Haydn

  58. I love how Brett did 9 notes for mahler then just stopped after the ninth. It's cuz mahler composed 9 symphonies

  59. At 5:02 it says 13 points and then at 5:24 it also says 13 points

  62. I just can not stop laughing
    On the vidoe
    And on the comments
    Lol

  63. 👏👏👏👏👏

  64. On a twoset video marathon and I have noticed, BRETT ALWAYS GOES FOR PAPER FIRST XD 0:50

  65. A quarter of these composers were taught in school music subject

  66. You know, for Strauss you could have just played Blue Danube. It's from a different Strauss after all…

  67. Which violin concerto is it

  68. Eddy's left part for his shirt is WET

  69. Eddy is more expressive and telling, Brett is more receptive. When they work like that, Eddy makes it easy for Brett. However, when they switch sides, Brett has a chance to learn how to convey his thoughts with clarity. I believe that in a few more videos we are going to see a new side of him! 😲😍 Well done, guys!

  70. Oh my God.
    The backwards Don Juan had me dying.

  71. if you can play it slowly you can play is backly…
    wait…

  72. But Brett should get the MINUS Points for playing the wrong pieces not Eddy ? so its Brett:Eddy 11 : 7

  73. When Eddy played the flute opera all I could think of is bibbles iconic singing from the barbie movies

  74. 9:55 opening in backwards is spelt wrongly (nginepo)

  75. I used to play a variety of instruments (predominantly piano, violin & clarinet) when I was younger, so it's so much fun to watch these two. But witnessing their musical talent/ability to identify chords so easily is very mesmerizing & intriguing 😍😍😍

  76. Pause at 8:19 caption this:
    When your friend is going totally nuts on the violin and you're so confused

  77. Sorry, where is Rachmaninoff?

  78. brett tried to stop himself mid playing and failed miserably hahahhhaha

  79. My teacher actually made me practice sings backwards, but like phrase by phrase backwards to memorize. It didn’t help

  80. As a Czech person, which is the same nationality as Dvořák’s, it it so funny for me to hear them trying to pronounce his name 😂

  81. I dont get it, why it is easier to guess if you play it backwards?

  82. I love these guys so much fjwngjwjjaifiqhtp

  83. Ahh yes, Chopan. A very famous composer in my old days, but now I’m dead and yeah

  84. I want a friendship like this OR I want Brett

  85. I could never get wagner from mozart partic the magic flute ..if you played some richard strauss like maybe elektra etc

  86. It's cool, Brett. I, too, often mix up Handel and Haydn's names

  87. Wow they even flip the composers’ photos and flipped the text XD

  88. Saint Saens— “If you can play it forwards you can play it backwards” 😂

  89. Brett is now a meme for when u forget something… OH NO NO NO!

  90. C R E E P E R , 1:49

  91. 7:12 definitely best oh bro ever
