rondo alla turca fail

We don’t know where this footage has come from, but it has spoken to us in ways we couldn’t imagine.

Sometimes, life is the finale of the Sibelius violin concerto, gloriously performed to a packed audience at the Royal Albert Hall.

And other times… most times… OK, almost all times, it’s Rondo Alla Turca played on live TV with electric keyboard accompaniment.
