Musician Impressively Plays ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ at Increasing Speeds on a Tiny Toy Grand Piano

Musician Hayato Sumino impressively performed the rapid-fire Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov classic “Flight of the Bumblebee” on a tiny toy grand piano at astonishingly increasing BPMs (beats per minute) until his fingers were flying off the keys. Sumino likened the performance to a sport.

BPM160: Easy
BPM190: OK, I can play
BPM220: My fingers will cramp…
BPM250: I don’t understand why my fingers are moving so fast
This is sports rather than music
