Flight Of the Bumblebee


Aspiring pianists everywhere aim to one day be able to play the infamous Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. This phenomenal piece of piano music is challenging for a number of reasons. The sheer speed at which it is normally played poses the biggest contest, but in order for the Flight of the Bumblebee to mimic the fast beating of a bumblebee’s wings, it really does need to be played at the speed of light. Along with the speed of the piece, it is a work of technicalities. The long chromatic passages ensure that only the most technically sound players will be able to master it!

Flight of the Bumblebee on a Digital Piano Twenty Years Ago

Twenty years ago if even the most talented pianist played Flight of the Bumblebee on a digital piano, it probably wouldn’t have sounded fantastic. Old digital piano technology would have struggled to keep up with the exceedingly fast passages throughout the whole piece. However, times have changed and digital pianos have come on leaps and bounds in the past two decades.
