    What utter cr*p

    • jaypee says:

      I would have thought that someone who calls himself “FURZwängler” would have had a bit of humor…

  • Ann Goldberg says:

    Who’s conducting?

  • Dominic Stafford Uglow says:

    Oh, come on! Stop being so stuffy. These sort of things have always been done. It’s meant to be comedy. Whether you find it funny or not, that’s a matter of taste. Personally, it made me smile.

    I don’t see a great deal of difference between this and Hoffnung using vacuum cleaners in the 1950s or Frank Zappa using bathtubs and bicycles in the 1960s.

  • Milka says:

    Is there a Gould version ?

  • Alvaro says:

    Deutsche Grammophon is gonna sign him!

    THIS IS classical music!

  • Ricardo says:

    Terrific! Looking forward to his version of “Erwartung”.

  • FartWankler says:
