Hammer & Strings Conservatory

Come celebrate humor in classical instrumental music! We’ll look at music that imitates animals or people; pokes fun at other composers; makes humorous demands of the performer; contains written-in mistakes; ‘ruins’ a serious or beautiful moment with something incongruous; plays jokes on the listener; etc. There are a few composers for whom humor is an indispensable part of how they conceive of music and by the end of the hour we will have definitively conferred the title of “Funniest Composer of All Time”.
