The silliest classical music videos

Classical music can be serious, and it can be very silly. Here, we celebrate the latter with some of our favourite clips.

Sousaphone reporter

A reporter drops his microphone ...into a sousaphone

This Fox newscaster got a very fast lesson in the perils of marching band reporting. It was never a good idea to try and get that close to the mightiest brass instrument of all. Enjoy the moment, and the awkward retrieval of said microphone.

The bassoon and the cow - a duet

How's this for an unlikely duet - the woodwind instrument's soft baritone rasp, and that harsh caw of the crow... It may not be the most traditional windowsill serenade, but they both seem to love it.
