Piano Tuning How To401 Avenue Des Aunes, Magog, CA
Victor Borge performs his musical comedy routine at the White House. At the show he notices all the pianos in the White House play the same tune, and has trouble playing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1.
thanks, it seems about right (clothing, setting) – even though I do not know the joke
I can only imagine what it would have been like to be there and witness that live.
A true virtuoso.
« what’s the matter? What key are you playing in? » lol
he was a genius
HAHAHAHHAHA if you know all the original songs, its so funny,
Harry S, Chopin ROFL
hahahah 4:00 is hilarious i cant stop laughin
This is actually from an episode of The Abbott and Costello Show (the Colgate Comedy Hour). It wasn’t actually taped at the White House…that’s a ruse that’s part of the skit. The show was celebrating Dwight Eisenhower’s inauguration. These shows are available on DVD, and contain classic material by comic geniuses!
What is the musical joke at 1:00, and again at 1:46? It must be topical for the time. And, given that it is a White House performance, there may be a political connotation, too.
At 1:00 and 1:46, the piano insists on playing « Missouri Waltz. » These White House pianos were still under the influence of Harry Truman (Democrat), of Missouri, who had just departed Washington following the inauguration of Dwight Eisenhower (Republican). Truman was known for his piano playing as well as a couple of terms as U.S. president. Eisenhower was a golf player, not a piano player. Nevertheless, he would have to get those presidential pianos retuned!
Oh, thank you so much!
I greatly appreciate your good information!
Dont’ forget 1:23.
Absolutely. A persistent « Missouri Waltz »!
When Harry Truman came back to Independence, MO following Eisenhower’s inauguration, the American Legion band played « Missouri Waltz » for him. But Truman didn’t care for the song. One website says he called it a « ragtime song » and as bad as the « Star Spangled Banner » in terms of music. He said it was played 30,000 times during the 1948 presidential campaign and « I just got tired of it. »
‘what key are you playing in?’ hahahahahahahaha i love victor borge!!
Priceless. You know there’s a God around with that kind of talent.
@mrspeel7 Yeah, I was curious about the same thing…I think I might be too young to get the reference 🙂
@McBearPEI A-ha! Good catch that I missed. Thanks!
this guys was THEE best
Cracking up at the Blue Danube parody.
too bad there is no audience footage of stuff, because I saw this guy live in concert when he was 90 and 91 years old!!!
is this on dvd?
At age 90 he came out on stage, took the microphone, and a puff of smoke came out of his mouth. the audience reacted and he said « Mexican Food ».
what is that gadget for?
I love it when Victor slips/falls off the bench. 🙂 I wonder how many bruises he endured over the years. 😉
