Beethoven's Wig Is Very Big!
"What's the most far out place you could find a recording of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony? The answer lies in the CD itself." Susan Stamberg, National Public Radio "All Things Considered
"Perlmutter's got goofball charm…the orchestra's great, and his lyrics are truly hilarious."
U.S. News & World Report
"After we played "Beep Beep Beep" on the show, it may have set the record for most "how do I get that" e-mails from listeners"
"An irreverent, witty approach to music appreciation… a laugh out loud album that pretty much guarantees listeners will forevermore recognize (the classics)." Los Angeles Times
Beethoven once said, "If my music had words it'd be a lot more popular."
His wish has come true! Modern day “co-writer” Richard Perlmutter has added lyrics to Beethoven (and Bach, Mozart, et. al) that have propelled the works of the old longhairs to the tops of the charts. And introduced them to new audiences everywhere.
Two chart topping #1 albums on Amazon. Four Grammy Nominations. Concert appearances nationwide.
Beethoven’s Wig is big!!
