Review: Pianista: The Legendary Virtuoso (Nintendo Switch)

Review by Matt S.

"Classical" music is a little like Shakespeare: We all know the highlights; Shakespeare's "to be or not to be," for example, and we all recognise that famous sequence of eight chords in Beethoven's Symphony No.5, Mov. 1 the moment that we hear it. But so few of us have the inclination or opportunity to put context around those critical, defining moments of classical artistry. In addition to being a brilliant little rhythm game, Pianista is brilliant because it gives people the opportunity to start learning about some of history's most incredible composers, and the music that the produced beyond the popular soundbites.
