Insanely funny live piano concert heard on WTMI in Aug 1

Postby BigPaulão » Thu Feb 21, 2002 4:18 pm

Hello, Nicole.<P>I heard about WTMI the first time I went to U.S. on training on Fort Lauderdale, and I thanked God that there was alternatives to other radios on the dial. Being a brazilian guy that loves classical music (and not getting to listen any brazilian music on Florida, not so surprisingly :) ) I've went on with WTMI during my permanence in South Florida.<P>Well, I don't know whether you can help, but at the time of the subject I've heard a program (I'm almost certain it was a saturday or sunday) where the piano player was very... Let's say... "Irreverent". I remember that he said as long he played the "Liebestraum" how the piece was "disgusting". (Don't take me wrong, I love classical music but I don't matter if someone wants to make people laugh out of it.)<P>It was insanely funny, and I remember also that this was a live recording from the 50's.<BR>Do you know the name of the recording or at least the name of the piano player? I really don't know whether you were with WTMI or not at the time; if not (and also if you don't know the recording), could you point me to other people that may know about this?<P>TIA,<BR>Paulo Fessel

Well, my best guess is that it was done by Victor Borge, who died within the past year or so. He was most definitely an accomplished pianist, but he had about a dozen comedy routines that seemed to keep him well-fed from shortly after the time he arrived in the US.<P>If you're looking for a recording, try ebay.com.<P>Jim
