Some musical clerihews:
George Frederick Handel
Exclaimed: "It's an absolute scandal!"
When one of his orchestral suites
Was performed with irregular beats.
Found Liszt's flamboyance scarcely human.
He and Clara both opined
That Chopin's playing was more refined.
Is not as famous as Vivaldi.
One of the likely reasons
Is his lack of a smash hit like The Four Seasons.
Was artistically stirred
By Catholic rituals, which he kept hidden,
For in England popery was strictly forbidden.
The French composer Maurice Ravel
Cried "Merde!" (which is stronger than "Hell!"),
"If you don't play this tune cantabile,
You'll ruin my opus mirabile!"
Explained how his music was written.
The thing that inspired him most
Was the spirit of the wild Suffolk coast.
Christoph Willibald Gluck
Wrote several operas that are worth a look.
He made no apology
For his constant use of classical mythology.
