Rachmaninoff Meets Harpo Marx

Something for the weekend.  Harpo Marx gives an interesting, yes that would be the word, interpretation to Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C Minor.  Harpo (Adolph) Marx was a self-taught pianist and harpist of no small skill.  I developed a love of classical music from these type of interludes in movies and Bugs Bunny cartoons that played on the TV constantly while I was growing up.

Here is Rachmaninoff performing the piece.
