When my husband and I go to the movies, we like to play "spot the Carmina". There have been countless lifts from this work, or other rafter-shakers of classical literature. We also have a stock answer when some idiot asks us what the movie them is based on - "Bartok Concerto for Orchestra". When it actually is ON the radio - we fall down laughing, not at the work per se, but OMG - it really IS the BCFO.
There are all the Kreisler *discoveries*, too. An we were at a Chopin recital many years ago ( I will think of the artist's name eventually . . . Janis maybe???) when he played a *lost* waltz. It seemed that Chopin, the perennial houseguest, would *compose* this *new* waltz at every home he visited, and dedicate to the hostess upon departure. Not sure how many versions exist - but still a funny story - if I recall it correctly.
Right now, we are watching the Pillars series - and the music is a hoot - I guess if you add a rhythm section or big orchestra to chant, you get - what??? And I recall finding a hilarious *reggae* version of songs of Hildegard of Bingen. I told my students when I played it in class that although Irish monks and Viking sailors had come to the New World long before Columbus - we have no record of Hildegard coming to Jamaica.
Added - yes, Peter Schickele is cool - but the New Horizons it not really a spoof - the orchestra plays it correctly, except for Bobby Corno laying a huge clam on the horn entrance - New Horizons is a play-by-play and *color* team doing a running commentary as if this were Monday Night Football. Spoofs of Schickele would be things like "My Bonny Lass She Smelleth (making the flowers jealouth . . ")
I own all his stuff - in vinyl and CD. I remember being at Hartt in the Sixties and getting *chemically altered* in the dorms, and playing this stuff - and it is just as funny sober . . .I betcha I can match you quote for quote from the pantheon.
