mrdux Satires on Classical Music: Suggestions? (45) RE: Satires on Classical Music: Suggestions? 13 Nov 08


try some Victor Borge -- his takes on Chopin's Minute Waltz and Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata are priceless.

PDQ Bach is, in his own way, Professor Schikele's chanelling of Gerad Hoffnung, a cartoonist and musician who put on three music festivals in the fifties, which included such titles as Concerto for Hosepipe and Strings, Concerto popolare (A Piano concerto to end all piano concertos), Waltz for Restricted Orchestra, and a duet from the comic opera The Barber of Darmstadt.

And JennieG is right: Anna Russell's Ring Cycle is not to be missed.
