A Lebanese man plays piano concert at Prague's airport has struck a chord, garnering nearly 900,000 views on YouTube since it was posted.

“I spent 12 days in Europe without playing music, so I missed playing and became very excited about it,” Maan Hamadeh told The Daily Star Sunday. “While we were looking for the gate to board our next flight, my friend stopped me and he pointed toward a piano, and so like a baby who has found his mother after getting lost, I ran to it.”



Passengers perked up on their seats eying Hamadeh as he played attention-grabbing variations of Ludwig van Beethoven's “Fur Elise” followed by famous scores from the blockbuster movie “Titanic.”

Hamadeh played the well-known Beethoven classic with a quicker tempo, adding some Arabic taste of music to it !!

“I have previously tried the Arabic remix once for ‘Fur Elise’ at home, but the other remixes I played were [thought up] on the spot,” Hamadeh said.

The crowd was already clapping after his performance, while others pulled out their phones and videotaped the spontaneous performance.

“First people where indifferent listening to a normal ‘Fur Elise’ version, but after I started with my remixes, they were very engaged,” he said.

A girl was reading a book just sitting beside Hamadeh and was completely touched by the notes that was coming from the Piano. As she put down the paperback and dedicated her attention to the piano player’s whimsical orchestrations.

“I would love to see pianos in all public place, especially those where the waiting factor is present,” Hamadeh said.

Hamadeh has been playing piano for 21 years and is originally a keyboard player and a one-man show.
