Sheet Music for Playing the Piano with Your Bottom

I’ve just discovered the wonderful (and occasionally obscene) Twitter account Threatening Music Notation. It’s filled with pictures of strange slices of musical notation, such as instructions to consume cocaine, mooing like a cow, slapping a fish, and producing fart-like sounds.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

What’s going on in the above selection? Twitter user @ONEiROSEB says that it’s a selection from the works of Victor Borge, a Danish-American musical comedian.

Borge was famous for his physical comedy while playing the piano on stage. In this recording, he plays Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody #2 with the help of Şahan Arzruni, classical pianist. At the 2:00 mark, Borge stands up, sits on the keyboard, then sits back down to continue playing with his fingers.
