RAINER HERSCH: ALL CLASSICAL MUSIC EXPLAINED

-
Tickets from £15.00

A brilliant, quick witted and splendidly silly stand-up show!

‘All Classical Music Explained’ is a brilliant stand-up show, starring a comedic maestro who has conducted more orchestras than you can wave a stick at. In addition to his career on BBC Radio 4 and Classic FM, Rainer Hersch’s comedy routines have earned him over 60M fans on YouTube.

In this quick witted and splendidly silly concert, he tackles those difficult questions you have so often asked yourself but been too embarrassed say out loud: “why is organ music so boring?”; “is the triangle hard?” and “what does a conductor actually do?” And, whether you are a music professor or couldn’t tell string quartets from a string vest, trust us, these are the answers you have been waiting for.

With slides, live music and laugh-out-loud gags ‘All Classical Music Explained’ probably won’t teach you anything, but it will make you laugh. Really laugh.

Is it suitable for children?

Parental Guidance: There is no swearing or sexual references in the show and children DO enjoy Rainer’s performances (there are physical, visual and of course musical elements to the show which are entertaining to any age). But he is not a children’s entertainer. The ideas he uses in his show are adult and refer to adult concepts. One might think of it as a stand-up show whose theme happens to be classical music. In other words, it depends on the child!
