Has Classical Music Lost Its Sense of Humour? « Marion Harrington's Clarinet World.

Clarinetist friend Marion Harrington suggested we classical musicians need to show our fun sides once in awhile. I agree.

On reviewing the vast majority of classical music’s media output, a complete novice to the genre would be forgiven for thinking that we’re all a very dull and boring lot. Don’t misunderstand me, I take my career very seriously, but I simply can’t remember the last time I came across a video or any audio that evidenced classical musicians having a blast – certainly not well known names.
