The Latvian violinist Roberts Balanas, a student at the Royal Academy of Music, performs his own arrangement of Elton John’s ‘I’m Still Standing’.

On his Facebook page, Elton John says: ‘I was recently sent this video by Roberts Balanas and I thought it was so fantastic, I just had to share it with you all. Roberts is a student at the Royal Academy of Music and put together this arrangement of ‘I’m Still Standing’ for their Regents’ event that was due to happen back in May. It’s far too good to go to waste, so I’m very glad that you recorded it and sent it to me! I hope to one day get the opportunity to meet you and see you perform in person. -E xx’
