Hamelin breaks out a Jazz Chopin that's pretty cool. Check it out: Chopinata

Do pianists do this sort of arranging alot? I think this is probably the most humorous piano piece i've heard in a while. What do you think?

Yeah that piece is funny.

Doucet also did one for Liszt and another one for Wagner. They are quite interesting.

Ah, I was sure there was a 3rd one apart from Chopinata and Lisztonia!

Luck has it that it turns out to be Wagner...

He did Wagnereske (aka Wagneria) and Isoldina, which both were published. As far as I know he also has written Griegiana which was unpublished.

Has anyone recorded all of them? I have heard Chopinata many times, but I am still unfamiliar with the other three. Nothing on YouTube though.

Best wishes!
