Ah, and the marvelous Michael Romeo of Symphony X does a translation of the 3rd movement on guitar.

Whether or not you like or dislike heavy metal style music, as someone in the top 100 guitarists in the world (he’s #91 last ranking – only because I checked), plus his passion for classical music translated into a form that ears-that-would-never-listen-to-classical-otherwise will hear, he deserves kudos.

Nobody’s ever captured the full version I hear in my head when I’m playing this movement – or ANYTHING on the piano – and I’m not nearly patient enough to piece it together myself.on the computer but having heard this, he captures a piece of it.

Then again, when I hear music in my head, there’s a planet blowing up somewhere, or a gluon is created in a dramatic collision and decays into a top and antitop … or, on rare occasions, the cesium atoms have reached an Efimov state and the balance and the ever increasing shells expanding outwards into macroscopic reality are just… well.. it’s a phenomenal feeling.

Anyway, he captures a little bit of it with his guitar as well.
