Last night I watched this week’s episode of Copper (BBC) and there was a fancy party, with the inevitable string quartet. This was a bit more realistic than most fancy party scenes. Usually you hear the same few bars of music over and over again for what is supposed to be an entire evening of partying. But in the Copper party the string quartet actually played a number of different pieces, including the Rondo Alla Turca from Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 11. I still like the piano version better but sometimes it’s fun to hear different arrangements of familiar music.
Of course, Youtube being what it is, all sorts of bizarre, unorthodox arrangements came up.
Never before has a banjo sounded so good.
