you are my father, prepare to die in the key of E minor

I am totally enamoured of this beautifully ridiculous Star Wars cello battle. Not because of the actual battle, although it's beautifully ridiculous, but because the arrangement of Star Wars theme music is actually amazing and wonderful. Also, the Wookiee is genius.

Oh, lord, there are bits nicked from all over. There's a Brahms violin concerto in there somewhere too, and of course "Mars" from Holst's Planets, and Handel's Dead March in Saul. I think the reason the Star Wars music became so instantly iconic is because a lot of it was iconic to start with.
This is genius. Thepianoguys.com site has a clip of them playing the Peanuts theme at an old folks home, which is beautiful. I find that tune totally infectious.
