P.D.Q. Bach - Not the best classical composer, but definitely the worst.

Any P.D.Q. Bach fans here?

Samples of his compositions being performed by professor Peter Schickele here:

http://www.myspace.com/peterschickele

More information on P.D.Q. Bach here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P._D._Q._Bach
http://www.schickele.com/pdqbio.htm

The music is espically funny if you understand music theory and/or were classically trained.

I have a couple of CDs... I enjoy occasionally listening to them... definitely the funniest non-visual or vocal stuff I have ever encountered. Well, maybe other than a couple of Spike Jones' instrumentals.

I'm not a music expert, but I'd rather listen to PDQ's works than most opera, or any dissonant "classical" works.

I *think* we played one of his compositions in high school band. We needed to get a few new instruments for that one, notably a duck call and a pop gun.

Fan? Shoot, I've played some of his music and went to see performances at a Carnegie a number of times. I loves me my "Iphegenia in Brooklyn".
