    Default Funny Fakes

    I was thinking pictures because I find this rather rib-tickling, but if you can think of any funny classical music fakes, do share!

    Don't know if this is entirely relevant, but it is a bit entertaining - Danny Kaye Show - Beethoven (and Napoleon!)...

    I literally laughed out loud the first time I saw this on the internet, so I took it to be my Profile picture (the one other than the avatar), so I didn't actually create this just to let you all know. It's Glazunov if you don't recognize:

    I once heard about some Haydn manuscripts discovered in someone's attic, written in ball point pen.

    Ah. Now would these manuscripts be the missing 6 keyboard sonatas which Paul Badura-Skoda was persuaded to play & record? I bought the CD when there was still a bit of doubt about them. Now they're known to be fake I haven't bothered. They seemed to be reasonably Haydnesque if my memory serves. But I think the ball-point info must have crept into the story in between then & now.

    Well, if they're good music, who cares whether they are really by Haydn? Anyway, I could make a ballpoint copy of a Beethoven sonata; that doesn't mean the music isn't by Beethoven. Perhaps the ballpoint Haydn sonatas are copies of originals?

    Some years ago, there was this lady who claimed to be in contact with the ghosts of various composers, and took dictation from them, so she came up with all manner of new works by Beethoven, Chopin etc. Now those I really am just slightly skeptical about... ;-)
