Acclaimed Steinway Artists Anderson & Roe have created an epic two-piano cinematic reimagining—chock-full of opera characters and tropes throughout its three-act storyline—as part of Steinway & Sons' Music & Vision series.
Freddie Mercury himself said: "We break a lot of rules. It's unheard of to combine opera with a rock theme, my dear." To come full circle, Anderson & Roe reclaim the classical roots of Queen's timeless hit, infusing it with playful nods to Wagner, Liszt, and 18th-century comedic opera. "Freddie Mercury was so overtly influenced by classical music", note Anderson & Roe, "that it was especially exciting to tackle 'Bohemian Rhapsody' as classical pianists, composers, and filmmakers. We're sending our love back his way by celebrating the vision, pathos, rebellion, and flamboyance of this iconic song."
