Is this the future of classical music?

It is better than most of the "modern interpretations" I have heard.
At least they use a real person for the percussion- seems to be fashion to just put a static drum track behind everything.

I definitely like it better than "A Fifth of Beethoven," the disco version from the 70s by Walter Murphy and the Big Apple Band. Anyone else remember that?

I prefer the disco version from the 70's, this seems to take too much away by the great amount of changes to me, more so than the disco version...

It's not the future of classical music. It's a latin cover of a classical piece. Just like I'd write a death metal cover of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto.

Clarinetguy - a friend of mine actually used Murphy to score his film soundtrack.  :) (2002 Changing Hearts starring Faye Dunaway)

He's still around!

What is the brass instrument they kept showing? The one that looked like a trombone bell with a vertical slide and lots of tubing.

Did Dr. Suess and PDQ Bach design this together?

Hey Glenn, long time no talk!!

It was so awful it made me want to wander down to the local old folk's home and pull some toenails out ...

I jest, but frankly, I didn't like it.

It's like when people "improve" Lennon and McCartney. A novelty, but not really something enduring. The classics are called that for a reason.

ESPECIALLY pieces like Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Trying to put a modern spin on it doesn't work.... for my tastes at least.

Be still my lunch!
