Victor Borge

May 29, 2010

Victor Borge and ┼×ahan Arzruni perform Liszt’s Second Hungarian Rhapsody:

Victor has just finished conducting at one of his 80th birthday concerts and the crowd reaction was so good that the violinist, Anton Kontra, suggests an encore. No encore was planned but Monti’s Czardas, which Victor had heard before BUT HAD NEVER PLAYED, is suggested. Nevertheless, the two go at it and put on quite a show.

It’s worth spending half an hour on Youtube looking at his stuff – it’s all brilliant.
