Notes & Reviews:

"Laugh with classical music? Well, I never!" No doubt that's what far too many soberly dignified classical music fans might say upon learning of this compilation that celebrates humor in classical music. Take a moment to revel in snickers, chuckles, and chortles with favorite performers of the Delos catalogue as they loosen up with musical jokes from all eras.
