Product details

This is a collection of humorous pieces which incorporate classical material in a variety of ways, including quotation, collage, parody and pastiche. It includes eight short movements:

Two Swans Under Two Moons - The swans of Tchaikovsky and Saint-Saens bask in the moonlight of Beethoven and Debussy.

Always Tragedy - What could be more tragic than a meeting between Tristan, Isolde, Romeo, Juliet and the Butterfly Lovers?

A Phonecall to Mozart - Nokia's ringtone interrupts Mozart while he is trying to compose his Piano Sonata in A Major.

What for Elise? - The familiar wrapping paper contains unexpected presents from far and wide...

J.S the Great - Bach's own melodies woven together in Bach's own way. No extra notes are added.

To Comrade Shostakovich - An appreciation of his lighter side. The theme comes from a children's song from his cantata Song of the Forest.

Caterpoint - Prokofiev's cat from Peter and the Wolf dances to a counter melody.

Brahmsody - A rhapsodic treatment of Brahms' Symphony no. 1 in C Minor brings this collection a vigorous conclusion.
