Hilarious and entertaining!
23 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I grew up listening to Danny Kaye, and always enjoyed him and his humour. Granted, this won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it is definitely funny. Undoubtedly Danny Kaye at his best. I remember this came on TV oh so many years ago (I was only a young boy), and we recorded it. I remember watching it SO many times, and ALWAYS found it good for a laugh. If you don't like classical music, you may find it a bit ho-hum. But if you want a fun way to introduce the kids into the joys of classical music, you can't miss this. Unfortunately some of Kaye's dialogue is badly recorded (just by one microphone in front of the podium), but given it WAS 1981, the concept of wireless lapel microphones was not in common use. That is about the only negative thing I can say about this. If you want to spend two hours listening to some of the greatest classical pieces of all time while laughing your head off, this is the way to do it!
