Bulgarian Cellist Plays Stirring Cover of the Theme from ‘The Godfather’

Whether you’re a fan of the movie “The Godfather” or just a classical music enthusiast, this performance will surely give you the chills. A woman from Bulgaria named Vesislava Todorova has pulled at many people’s heartstrings with her gripping take of The Godfather’s movie score. For those who are not familiar with this film, it is based on the best-selling novel of Mario Puzo in 1969. The masterpiece was released in 1972 and was directed by Puzo’s screenplay co-writer, Francis Ford Coppola. And it has been known to be one of the most powerful and influential crime films ever created in the industry.


Yet you don’t need to be a fan of this interesting genre to enjoy Vesislava’s passionate performance. Armed with her lovely cello and a melancholic piano in the background, the Bulgarian musician filled the room with mystery and somber as soon as the video started. We are greeted with a lovely view looking through a floor-to-ceiling window. But while the vast view is full of vibrant hues, it’s clear that the ambiance in the room is gloomy and heavy. This creates a perfect balance in the setting that makes the performance more dramatic and captivating.


Not to mention that the way she sways and feels the music as she carefully caresses the cello just adds so much emotion to the entire act. It’s as if the music is directly speaking to you and captivating you with each note even without a single word sung. It leaves all the viewers no choice but to feel each note creating a wonderful symphony together that floats in the air to touch your heart.

See the video below and listen to a work of art you’d surely want to hear over and over again.

All I can say is that watching this is surely an “offer you can’t refuse”. What an amazing performance!
