Review: Piano Concerto #21 in C

It is no surprise that the majority of the audience at last night’s concert demanded ticket refunds. Up until the end of the second movement Mr Hendrix had delivered Mozart’s Concerto Number 21 in C in virtuoso fashion, as we all expected.

Who knows what suddenly possessed him to suddenly clamber inside the piano to pluck the strings with his teeth? It was only with the help of the double bass player and the conductor’s baton that the stage crew managed to usher him into the wings.

And whatever was he planning to do with the lighter fluid and matches?

    So that’s how Hendrix got into heavy music…interesting.

    I always feel I get my money’s worth when the performer has to be ushered off stage just before lighting the place on fire! Great little story Patrick!

  3. Mr. Hendrix probably should stick to guitar.

  4. Nicely written and highly amusing.

  5. Hi Patrick,
    Hilarious juxtaposition, to put Hendrix in a symphonic setting. Those classical players never smash up their instruments, or their hotel rooms, don’t play with their teeth, and their only fire is when they play the Firebird suite. Great take on the photo. Ron

    Very funny! Glad I wasn’t there, though 🙂

    a nice take on the subject. the last sentence also allows the readers to make their own conclusions.

  8. Taygibay says:

    Very nice! Quite a trip down memory lane, thnx, Tay. 😎

  9. Gee, what got into Mr. Hendrix anyway? This is one of my favorites this week. I still think the audience would have been dazzled with a fire show, especially set to Mozart’s music.

    Bravo! Saved from a flaming finale. Well done. 🙂

  11. Dear Patrick,

    Somehow I can’t imagine Hendrix playing classical piano. Funny stuff.

    Dear Patrick,

    Great story in which the he and the was need to be reversed in the last line. Me thinks.



  13. I was completely involved in the story, watching and waiting breathlessly for something to happen. Brilliantly structured and written, Patrick.

    It would have been an interesting show to say the least.

  15. That must have been quite a concert!!


  16. Sandra says:

    Nice take on the prompt.

  17. That’s an image I’ll never shift. Fantastic.

  18. Guess he just got caught in crosstown traffic!

I'd love to read what you think ...
