So you think classical music is only for folks that are stuffy old or pretentious young people? Think again. The classical composers of old were the rock stars in their age. Nuts, even. They were Kurt Cobains and the Jim Morrisons of a time when the viola and harpsichord were like the electric guitar of now.
Children, these are the things they do you are taught by ’t in middle school music course.
Read on to learn which classical composers were the authentic rock star freaks in their age.
Mozart was a tremendous pervert.
Believe the embodiment of The Bloodhound Gang of 18th Century Austria.
He wrote filthy funny letters to his family members, like this one to his own cousin:
“Well, I wish you good night
But first shit into your bed and make it break open.
Sleep soundly, my love
Into your mouth your arse you’ll shove.”
He also composed a piece of music including this line:
“Leck mich im A[rsch] g’schwindi, g’schwindi!”
Which translates to: “lick me in the arse/ass, fast, fast!”
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky was like the Metallica of mid 1800’s Russia.
He called for genuine rules to be fired during specific parts of the “1812 Overture“. Folks got so amped up over the performance that they all but began rioting.
The US attempts to maintain it popular during 4th of July fireworks, as a patriotic piece. Himself has said about Napoleon neglected his assault on Russia, and then get his butt kicked by the Russian winter that it’s really.
