STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN - Led Zeppelin (Piano Cover) | Costantino Carrara

The story of the video The idea behind the arrangement was born in 2018 when I visited Iceland during the holidays, and I fell in love with the location. “I was shaken by the peacefulness and quietness of that fjord. There are only a few villages there, it is nature that dominates the rest of the landscape. That moment inspired me, and I wanted to compose something of mine on the notes of the most famous track of Led Zeppelin: Stairway To Heaven” says the artist, explaining how he wrote his latest work, halfway between an arrangement and an original composition. The production was not easy: we had to fly to the east coast of Iceland on a 25 seat plane and drive for two hours on the snow to Fáskrúðsfjörður, the location of the video, while the grand piano truck drove all night long from Reykjavik to the dock. The unpredictable weather conditions could have canceled all the plans, but the day after, everything was set and despite all the worries, we've been able to film on the location!

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
