We’ve been messing around with Snapchat filters and couldn’t resist seeing what great composers might have looked like as littl’uns. Baby Stravinsky is quite the sight to behold...
Snapchat recently introduced a new baby filter, designed to reduce the age of any face to infantile proportions. The baby filter works instantly, revealing a face in its baby version in less than a second. We couldn’t resist trying it on a few of our favourite composers, just for your enjoyment (and ours too).
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart had probably written 17 symphonies, several operas and a couple of musical jokes by this age.
Ludwig van Beethoven
Baby Beethoven ready for anything!
George Frideric Handel
We’re not sure we’d be able to *Handel* it if we saw a real baby with this many curls.
Johann Sebastian Bach
Aw little Clara Schumann: butter wouldn’t melt...
Wagner would have been 206 on his birthday just a couple of days ago – we reckon he looks pretty good for his age…
Mini Fanny Mendelssohn has to be the cutest so far…
And baby Stravinksy is by far the most disturbing.
We’ve definitely never seen a baby with this much facial hair before, but then it could be the sign of musical greatness. It is John Williams we’re talking about here…
Yep, Elgar was born with that moustache, so we've proved it: facial hair on babies = musical genius.
