SARAJEVO: Twenty piano students from Bosnia and Herzegovina gathered at City Hall in Sarajevo to break the Guinness World Record of the most people playing one piano simultaneously.

The previous record had 18 pianists simultaneously playing the piano.

The students performed a composition of ‘Galop Marche’ which was written by French musicologist and composer Albert Lavignac.

The entire musical performance was being prepared for several months before its final performance at the city hall.

According to the organizers, the previous record was broken to promote pedagogical artistic work. The real challenge was about how to accommodate all the 20 students together in a position that they can play the piano. Some were asked to stand, some were made to sit while others even laid down on the giant piano to play it.
