Last Tango in Bayreuth

Inside Music radio show episode: Last Tango in Bayreuth by Peter Schickele on WWFM The Classical Network

The wonderful humor of American musical parodist Peter Schickele is the subject of this episode! A devoted fan of the late Peter Schickele and Mr. Schickele’s alter ego, P.D.Q. Bach, host George Marriner Maull thought it well at this juncture to “lighten up” the atmosphere a bit. Special attention is given to Last Tango in Bayreuth, a parody of the music of Richard Wagner, written and published under Mr. Schickele’s own name. Musical moments from the output of P.D.Q. Bach are also featured!
