If you don't know what I am talking about, you need to go here and listen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShPJh936CNI (listen only, yes, anyone can hear it, safe for work,rated G, etc.).

Then you may realise that when the 5th symphony came on the radio, all I could think was "Donkerson"

Since I have no desire to have Beethoven's 5th ruined for me, I'm not going to click on that link :smallbiggrin:

Well, when I say ruined, I mean "only the first movement, and all that really happens is you hear the word Donkerson at random intervals throughout it in your head. And think about how that horn player fluffed that note"

"The players are all lined up and ready to begin playing Beethoven's 5th Symphony against the Danish conductor blabla blablabla."

:smallbiggrin: Hilarious!

It is a truly hilarious experience. And like the rest of Peter Schickele's humor, it grows funnier the more you know about classical music. The largest wonder when going to one of his concerts is that the local performers are able to keep a straight face.
