High C’s is the incredible new track by Thomas Bergersen of Two Steps from Hell.
As soon as I saw High C’s, I knew I had to make a piano arrangement. It always seems that just when I think Thomas Bergersen couldn’t possibly write anything better, he reaches a new level of astounding mastery. Such is the way with High C’s, one of the best pieces of music I’ve ever heard.

This is my own piano arrangement of High C’s and I believe I am the first to arrange this piece. The track is just so incredible. I remember the day it came out, I had tears in my eyes because it was so beautiful. I pressed the replay three times and I was truly in awe.
I have been following Thomas Bergersen’s music for years now. It has so much life and vitality and his work, both on Two Steps From Hell and his solo albums, has been incredibly inspirational to me.
It was about time that I started making piano arrangements of his music!
This is my first real attempt at making something “virtuosic”. I’m greatly inspired by the YouTube pianist Animenz, whose every arrangement is at “insane” level. He also gets a huge number of views and I would love to eventually have a piano video on this channel that reaches one million views.
I’ve seen that Mark Fowler has reached over 2.5 million views on his Two Steps From Hell piano videos. INCREDIBLE! Just check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_I0DepxLaC4
I would be so happy if a video like this one reached even 1 million.
This track took me probably more effort than any other video I’ve made before. I actually injured myself trying to play the part where the first side angle comes in and took a week off playing to recover. High C’s was so incredibly difficult that it was impossible to play it all in one sitting. Instead I recorded each part as a separate take, getting them as perfect as possible. Because it would have been pretty much impossible to play it up to scratch all at once.
2016 has been a very interesting year for me – I began working in music full time in September, quitting my day job to do what I love. There’s a point sometimes when you are doing something and your heart just isn’t in it. That was me before I went full time. My ambition is to put out a video every single week and I have a goal of reaching 10,000 subscribers by July 2017.
Anyway! I hope that you enjoy High C’s – I’ve used everything at my disposal to bring you the very pinnacle of my piano ability.
