In order to highlight the "fundamental musical similarities" between Kanye West and Beethoven's music, new performance artists Yeethoven held an event, which took place at the Aratani Theatre in Los Angeles over the weekend. The orchestra presented a setlist that combined six compositons by Ludwig van Beethoven and six from Kanye's album Yeezus.

"Yeezus appealed to both of us as something that transcended genre, and had more in common with some of our favorite classical music than it did with other hip-hop records," composer Stephen Feigenbaum said. Watch footage below.
