Some Humor: Symphony No. 5, PDQ Bach-Style

     I'm sure you will recognize that famous 4-note sequence that kicks off Beethoven's 5th Symphony.  Because this is such a familiar piece, I thought you might appreciate Peter Schickele's hilarious version, which is performed with a sports-commentary background.  Having performed with orchestras, myself, I can attest to the many parallels between the orchestra stage and the sports field!
     If you're looking for a little more madness from Peter Schickele, here's your chance to shop iTunes through us and help support our music appreciation course (any iTunes material you download after clicking through any Classically Gail link will help support us).
