Moonlight Sonata - Jazzed Up

I go to and this is right there on the homepage. It completely destroys the beauty of the Moonlight, IMO.

I must say, I prefer the electric guitar Pachebel. :roll:

Yes, it is certainly musical drivel compared to the mystical adagio we know so well. But I frankly don't like jazz at all. I'd much prefer an improvisation on Moonlight from professional pianists or (if I was alive back then) guys like Liszt, Thalberg, Dreyschock, even Busoni or Hoffman. However, if it's fun for this guy to play that, then I see nothing wrong with it.

I'd like to see him do the 3rd movement in jazz. :P
