“A classical concert is like sex” says Rainer Hersch, “you don’t know how long it will last, you don’t know what you should be thinking about and it can be embarrassing if you start clapping in the wrong place.”
And here it is, at last – All Classical Music Explained! Brilliant stand-up comedian Rainer Hersch’s funny and clever approach to a tricky subject. Ever wondered why they made you learn the recorder? What Mozart stole from ABBA? What they are actually singing at the opera? It’s all here and in hilarious form. Recorded live on tour in the UK, this is the comic maestro’s classic, original performance.
“Rainer Hersch is a wickedly funny man, who needs nothing more than a piano and his own wit to leave you desperate for more” (Edinburgh Evening News)
