Classical music often turns up in rather unexpected places, which tends to make my life as a music teacher a bit more entertaining. One of the more recent classical music surprises I encountered was in an animation about…pigeons.
I get the impression the animator has had their share of experience with hoards of pigeons descending upon them in search of bread…!
Incidentally, the work of classical music used in this piece was the “Infernal Galop” from Jacques Offenbach’s opera Orpheus in the Underworld. Or, as it’s generally know, the can-can music!
