Learn these 10 amazing pieces from 1700-1799 on piano with this video! Please enjoy!

You’ve heard the 10 SMASH HITS from the 1600s, but what about the following century? These incredible classical pieces from the 1700s are still performed to this day, with many of them remaining a staple of pop culture. The stories behind these pieces are sometimes on the verge of disbelief: did the Devil come to Tartini in a dream and play a piece for him that he would frantically try to write down, only to be disappointed in his recreation? Did King George really stand in Handel’s Messiah during the chorus of Hallelujah, or was it just him needing to stretch?

If you haven’t heard much music from the Classical period and want to start, these ten pieces, transcribed here for piano, could be a fantastic sampler for you to expand your musical palette! We know you’ll just LOVE these smash hits because they are the best classical pieces, so let us know which ones you knew, and which ones you like the most!

Learn Moscow Nights by Vasily Solovyov-Sedoi on piano with this tutorial! Please enjoy!

Moscow Nights is one of the best-known Russian songs outside of the country. It was released in 1955 under the name “Leningrad Nights” only to be changed, after a request by the Soviet Ministry of Culture, to “Evenings in the Moscow Suburbs.” Moscow Nights has been covered by Vitas, adapted by Alma Deutscher, and covered several times since its release.

This piano tutorial for Moscow Nights was arranged professionally for anyone who wants to learn this beautiful and sad Russian song. You can find our official sheet music at the top of the description!

Lyrics:
Не слышны в саду даже шорохи,
Всё здесь замерло до утра.
Если б знали вы, как мне дороги
Подмосковные вечера.
Речка движется и не движется,
Вся из лунного серебра.
Песня слышится и не слышится
В эти тихие вечера.

Что ж ты, милая, смотришь искоса,
Низко голову наклоняя?
Трудно высказать и не высказать
Всё, что на сердце у меня.

А рассвет уже всё заметнее.
Так, пожалуйста, будь добра.
Не забудь и ты эти летние
Подмосковные вечера.

English lyrics:
Even whispers aren’t heard in the garden,
Everything has died down till morning.
If you only knew how dear to me
Are these Moscow nights.

The river moves, unmoving,
All in silver moonlight.
A song is heard, yet unheard,
In these silent nights.

Why do you, dear, look askance,
With your head lowered so?
It is hard to express, and hard to hold back,
Everything that my heart holds.

But the dawn’s becoming ever brighter.
So please, just be good.
Don’t you, too, forget
These summer, Moscow nights.

We examined the tweet, automatically sent to us from TeamYouTube about demonetizing us, to see what they were really saying. Did they really think our stuff was unoriginal? This is the danger of running a system by an algorithm and vague rules that cannot be clarified by a human representative.

Thankfully, everything has been resolved and YouTube has apologised for making a mistake and acknowledged that we indeed create original content and arrange our covers by ourselves.

We hope you enjoy this sad version of Rush B, arranged by the wonderful Rafał Bienias!

Learn The Remonetized Rag by Andrew Wrangell on piano with this tutorial! Please enjoy!

On the 16th of February, 2019 Sheet Music Boss was mistakenly demonetized by YouTube’s algorithm. In the following hours of distress, many figures from the YouTube community came together on Twitter to bring this issue to YouTube’s attention. In a few long hours, Sheet Music Boss was restored, with the YouTube representative admitting that it was a mistake in the process. The relief of having our channel returned as it should be was incredible, and to celebrate, we bring you this upbeat ragtime!

The Remonetized Rag is a piece written by Andrew Wrangell, featuring a catchy swing throughout that will leave you smiling like we were when our monetization was restored. You will love playing this piece in a concert or at home! It is appropriate for moderate to advanced level pianists who can reach an octave comfortably.

These ten pieces of music from 1600-1699 are masterpieces of composition. Written by various masters and forefathers of the art, these ten “smash hits” of the 1600s each come with a little interesting history behind them. From Buxtehude’s inspiration he gave to the legendary J. S. Bach, to Allegri, who inspired Mozart to become an ancient version of Napster and copy the whole piece by ear. Each of these pieces of music deserves a full listen, and we encourage you to seek out more recordings of these incredible, inspiring, breathtaking works. You won’t regret it!

If you are looking for a new playlist, maybe this is a great sampler to see what music is out there for you to discover! Works from earlier centuries are fascinating to look at through the eyes of today.

As these works are in the public domain, you will also be able to find free sheet music for all of them on the International Music Sheet Library Project (IMSLP).

Katyusha is a Russian wartime song, depicting a girl—Katyusha—longing for her love. It was first sung by female Soviet industrial school students, as they gave a goodbye to soldiers heading to the battle front of WWII. This piano arrangement will have you hooked on the catchy melody by Matvei Blanter, and have you humming the tune all day long!

This non-Russian version of Katyusha retains the awesome melody that we know and love, but makes it sound completely non-Russian! How did we do it? That’s a secret…
