More classical fails - musicians getting owned by their instruments

Clearly the musical instruments are angry. We've trawled the internet for the most painful, embarrassing and downright eek-inducing instrument-on-performer fails.

trombones fall over

Over the years, we've mistreated our musical companions

Our wooden-legged and highly-strung friends have had a tough time.

 

We've got your names wrong...


And at times we've just got it very, very wrong

 

The piano has had enough, and fights back

When you sing 'Nessun Dorma' with that much commitment, your piano's going to let you know it's not happy. The conductor of the Aber Valley Choir shows his true colours by sprinting away from danger at the earliest opportunity.

 

The brass will not take your lead

You can almost hear this errant Sousaphone shouting at its player, "And STAY down!"

 

The pianos who say "don't play me! Get away!"

Some pianos will go to insane lengths not to be played. 

 

The bow-breaker

"Eh, I don't like being played by someone with a purple shirt on. I'm done."

 

The trombone clash

Sometimes, when trombones are operating in packs, they will turn to mass sabotage to overthrow their human counterparts.

 

Harold In Italy

Or, as it's now known to this guy, Viola String in the Face. 

 

Trombone sneeze

This is what happens when you try to stifle a sneeze with your trombone. The trombone will always win.
