  • Hello.

  • Welcome to another distinguished and

  • i n t e r e s t i n g

  • episode of TwoSet Violin.

  • Today, we will be combining two of the most

  • historical and sophisticated

  • art forms.

  • Classical music,

  • with visual arts.

  • So basically, we've

  • - gathered a series of famous artworks. - Yeah.

  • And for each one, we are going to pair it up

  • with a choice of classical music

  • that we think pairs very well with this artwork.

  • For those of you...

  • ...high IQ,

  • - Intellectual people. - ...artistic, cultured intellectuals,

  • you'll be able to enjoy both these masterpieces of art,

  • while listening to a masterpiece of art.

  • Dude, it's like masterpiece plus masterpiece.

  • This is our...

  • Before we get started, make sure to...

  • ding~

  • the subscribe button,

  • - and ding the accent button, - Ding~

  • - and accent the triangle. - Ding ding!

  • The first artwork we have is...

  • the famous...

  • "Lisa Mona."

  • By...

  • "Va Dinci."

  • I can imagine people that don't understand it,

  • they take it seriously.

  • "TwoSet..." - "Lisa Mona and Va Dinci!"

  • "Oh my god, you got it wrong!"

  • Apparently, the actual piece of art is very small.

  • - In the museum. - We've seen it!

  • - Nah, I haven't seen it. - Oh, I've seen it.

  • Oh wait, does it follow you?

  • - Apparently, the eyes follow you. - Yeah, they follow you, but it's...

  • It's kinda underwhelming.

  • No, no, not the artwork.

  • Like, I thought it was gonna be a really big artwork.

  • - Oh, yeah yeah yeah. - And I remember it's like,

  • everyone's like, "It's just around the corner!"

  • And you see people huddling.

  • And I'm like, "Oh my god!"

  • Turn around, it's like, "Where is it?"

  • - It's just this tiny... - And I can imagine the amount of tourists,

  • - like the sea of tourists. - Oh, it was packed, it was packed.

  • And I was like, "What is everyone...?"

  • "Oh my god, it's tiny!"

  • Wait, okay. Actually, first, I want some historical context.

  • Dude, that's 500, that's...

  • - That's over 500 years ago. - Holy moly.

  • "Mindblown."

  • Is Da Vinci... Yeah, he's Italian.

  • Alright. I got one.

  • Nah nah nah nah nah, that doesn't work.

  • Are you getting any ideas?

  • - Nah, this sounds like... - This is like, it sounds like you're in feudal age.

  • Yeah...!

  • It's got more of that...

  • - Female... - Yeah.

  • The Mona Lisa. Her face kind of suits it.

  • Like... Here, listen to it.

  • When I play it, she smiles.

  • Dude, that's creepy as ****!

  • Apparently, people were so obsessed with this painting.

  • Like...

  • Men were like, in love with her.

  • Yeah, I guess that was a look back in the days.

  • Imagine a monobrow!

  • - I don't know, it feels... This feels alright for me. - It feels nice.

  • - It's kinda elegant as well. - Yeah.

  • - Cool. Next. - Nice, next one.

  • By van...

  • "Cough."

  • Van Gogh.

  • Oh.

  • - Okay, now... - I like this one.

  • Now, okay, here we go.

  • In my mind, I'm already thinking either...

  • Impressionistic, 'cause he's French.

  • Actually, I wouldn't say Impressionistic.

  • 'Cause Impressionism is not so surreal, like, um...

  • Sorry if I'm not using official art...

  • ...adjectives.

  • Dude, I just, I like the artwork.

  • - Yeah, it's really nice. - The more I look at it, the more I like it.

  • It's just all those lines. Whatever, dude I think,

  • - whatever the technique is. - How much do you think it is worth?

  • Probably...

  • 200 million.

  • Dude, that's ten Strads.

  • For a painting.

  • - You can't even play on the paint. I guess you can... - You can't even play!

  • - You get to look at it. - I guess you can look at it.

  • Every day you walk into your room, it's like...

  • Starry, starry night

  • What is... How do you protect it?

  • - What if a fire goes off? - Yeah, that's what I thought.

  • Like an earthquake happens.

  • It's like, or someone just rips it.

  • Alright, I reckon...

  • Alright, let's see. Van Gogh...

  • I like the Debussy Violin Sonata.

  • Debussy Violin Sonata.

  • - Felt a bit slow. - It's... Yeah.

  • It needs to be something like, more shimmery.

  • I'm actually more impressed that the violin and the

  • - woodwinds are so in tune. - Yeah yeah yeah...!

  • It's so in tune.

  • I liked it, though.

  • It worked. I think it's better than the Debussy.

  • - Let me see. - But something still feels missing.

  • - We're missing something, right? - Um...

  • - Ooh. - Oh!

  • This might be it!

  • - Yeahh! That suits really well. - I think so. I think we found the one.

  • - So what was that? - I think this is...

  • Yeah. That one's good.

  • - Alright, next one. - Yeah, that's the one. Next one.

  • - This took way too long. - Yeah.

  • - We saw this, in Norway! - Yeah!

  • - We ran, like... - In the museum.

  • The museum was about to close in like,

  • - 15 minutes or something. - Yeah.

  • And we're like, "Can we just go see it?"

  • - They're like, "Okay, just straight to the left." - Yeah.

  • And the dude in Norway gave us a discount.

  • - Yeah. - That was nice.

  • I just hear the...

  • Oh, the...

  • - That film music, the Psycho right? - Yeah.

  • (both) Yeah.

  • - Yeah. - AHHHHH!!

  • - Nah, that's it. - That's it, right?

  • (both) I think so.

  • - I think so. - Yeah.

  • Next.

  • - I'm feeling Bach. - Okay.

  • Just because Bach was very religious.

  • - Oh, yeah. Yeah. - Yeah.

  • Dude, yeah.

  • Oh, that's epic.

  • Oh, that's... Yeah. It's just...

  • The lights in the back.

  • There's discussion going on, the Last Supper.

  • - Oh, I'm getting goosebumps looking at that. - Yeah, that's good.

  • (both) Yeah...

  • Guys, if you haven't checked out Bach "Bass" in B Minor,

  • - just look at this painting. - Dude...

  • - And listen to it. - This will change.

  • All right. Next.

  • Girl with the Flaxen Hair.

  • - I thought that. - Yeah!

  • But I actually don't think it would work.

  • - No, 'cause the background is black. - Yeah.

  • That's why it won't work.

  • Girl with the Flaxen Hair is too...

  • - Outdoor, dreamy. - Yeah.

  • - And the flowers, and the... - Yeah.

  • Like a painting with grass and blue sky.

  • Girl with a Pearl Earring. What's the context of this?

  • This is so educational.

  • It's the Dutch Mona Lisa.

  • There needs to be some darkness to it.

  • This is hard.

  • - This one's hard! - This is really hard.

  • - 'Cause she's got this, this... - Dammit.

  • This girl has two sides of the coin.

  • Why is this girl so complicated?!

  • Debussy Reverie.

  • Let's try this.

  • Ooh.

  • - I like this one. Yeah. It's a lot better. - Oh, you reckon?

  • - That's my favorite one so far. - Because the music kinda...

  • Pulls you in, it's like...

  • - Yeah, it's just like she's pulling you in. - Yeah, she's like,

  • "Come here."

  • "Do you want to know who I am?"

  • "Are you sure you want to know who I am?"

  • - Oooh, I like that! I like that! - Yeah, it's like thinking...

  • - I think this is it. - Yeah, this is it.

  • - Yeah! - Mmmm...

  • Dude, Debussy is so good!

  • Ohh, Debussy!

  • I want Debussy!!

  • Dude, I like this painting.

  • - Yeah. - I want it. How much do you think it is?

  • I reckon 19 million.

  • I reckon 75 million.

  • Oh, 10 million.

  • Okay, we were overshoot.

  • - But that's still a lot of money. - Dude, that Van Gogh is really...

  • ...high then.

  • Damn.

  • Dude, 10 million is still ridiculous!

  • That's a freaking Strad.

  • Next!

  • This one's not a painting. It's a sculpture!

  • Why that...?

  • Dude, he's just thinking.

  • That is not think

  • - Is that what thinking is like for you bro?? - Yeah, dun dun...

  • What does thinking sound like for me?

  • So what music is now?

  • Just silence.

  • John Cage.

  • John Cage, 4'33".

  • Yeah!

  • Nah.

  • We need something.

  • A fugue!

  • Yeah! A fugue, a fugue.

  • - The most cerebral type of thing you can... - Yeah, yeah.

  • - Yeah, of course. - Yeah, I think a fugue.

  • - There's multiple things. - Yeah.

  • Let's try...

  • It sounds like an anime, Conan is like....

  • Eddy: Yeah...!

  • Yeah, that one.

  • That hits.

  • Whoa.

  • - This needs to look like... - It's just spazz.

  • What's that modern music that's just...

  • I don't know what that is.

  • - Do you guys know what that was? - I mean, every single

  • I don't know.

  • Wait, how much do you think this is worth?

  • - What is this picture called? - Let's go "No. 5 worth."

  • 140 million!!

  • And this was in 2006!

  • American. What's an American composer?

  • This is hard, this one's hard.

  • This one just sounds like...

  • - Is there any piece of music where it's just...? - So...

  • - Every instrument just starts playing randomly. - Frantic. George Crumb.

  • You know what it is?

  • It needs, um...

  • ...wind instruments as well.

  • I think it needs all timbres.

  • - Dude, I'm out of ideas. - Yeah, I'm trying to think.

  • This has to be it.

  • Come on Bartók, pull through.

  • I think this is my closest so far.

  • I mean...

  • - I think it's... Yeah. - It's just like, the kind of...

  • - Infinite strands, like which line are you following? - There's swirling.

  • Yeah. It just needs a bit more intensity somewhere.

  • Do let us know in the comments.

  • What you think.

  • Moving on.

  • This is the Venus, right?

  • She's Venus, right?

  • Mars, Holst?

  • Venus, from Holst.

  • I feel like it works, but not in the original intention.

  • It's like a re-interpretation of the...

  • Yeah, the violin solo seemed to me like
