Richard Grayson is, I think, a professor of music at Occidental College, and from time to time performs a pretty neat improv trick where he takes popular pieces of music and plays them in a vastly different style.

 

He has a few others on YouTube, but I opted to post one sample:  John Williams’ Imperial March from The Empire Strikes Back, in the style of Beethoven.
