Micro-Classics

Classic Buskers - composite - Credit Eric RichmondThe Classic Buskers’ Micro-Classics programme is drawn from the realm of popular classics, played on improbable instruments at ridiculous speeds. Their repertoire consists mainly of arrangements and derangements of most of the world’s musical masterpieces and may or may not include:

The Blue Danube

Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto

Smetana’s Vltava/Moldau

The Ride of the Valkyries (in costume)

Seasoning from Vivaldi

Tchaikovsky’s Italian Caprice

Haydn’s Farewell Symphony

a lot of Rossini

and a selection of deeply ethnic folk music from very unlikely countries
