The great composers... with cat beards
It's the latest craze that's taking the internet by storm, so for a little Friday afternoon entertainment, here's our take on the cat beard meme. Basically, it involves holding a cat in front of your face and taking a picture, making it look like a beard. Intrigued? Take a look at what the great composers would look like if they could take part in the trend.
1. Bach and a cat beard
Bach must have been listening to the Branden-purrr-g Concertos before holding a cat in front of his face.
2. Eric Whitacre and a cat beard
We're all enjoying a cat nap after listening to Eric Whitacre's Seal Lullaby.
3. Sergei Rachmaninov and a cat beard
Good old Fur-gei, sorry, SERgei Rachmaninov. With a cat in front of his face.
4. Richard Wagner and a cat beard
Birthday boy Richard Wagner, complete with cat beard. We've been listening to his Ride of the Val-kitties all week.
5. Sergei Prokofiev and a cat beard
Is that Peter and the Wolf? No, it's Sergei and the Cat. Not sure quite how that orchestral piece would sound...
6. Franz Liszt and a cat beard
Although Liszt may not be the most famous feline fanatic, his Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 was used in an episode of Tom and Jerry entitled The Cat Concerto. So here he is with a cat. As a beard.
7. Johannes Brahms and a cat beard
Brahms. With a cat beard. The composer was wrongly accused of slaying cats for around 100 years, so he could work the sounds into his chamber music - but this was later found to be a rumour. And a good job too.
8. Edvard Grieg and a cat beard
Grieg. Didn't he write the Hall of the Meowntain King, from Purr Gynt?
