Don't Fix It

A great big squash just sat upon my hat!

And now it’s time for Classy Songs with Larry.

Fun fact: this  piece of music once cost Richard Strauss a Whole Bunch of Money. “Funiculi, Funicula” was written by Luigi Denza in 1880, but when Strauss heard it, he assumed it had to be an old, traditional Italian folk tune. So he went ahead and wrote it into his Aus Italien and, naturally, Denza sued. And won royalties! But apparently Schoenberg got to use it for a string quartet scot-free; how’s that for favoritism?


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
