Heroes of Telemann

Spoiler:
Show
In 1943 a group of Norwegian Commandos kidnapped the popular German composer Telemann, whose patriotic symphonies were second only to Wagner in cheering up the Hun. After the war a film version of the events starring Kirk Douglas and Eva Gardner was a huge success, losing out in the Oscars to Where Elgar Dares

The Scarlatti Pimpernel

Spoiler:
Show
it is 1792. Italian music sensation Domenico Scarlatti is taking Paris by storm with his keyboard virtuosity. Think Richard Clayderman, think Harry Styles. Don't think Billy Eyelash.
After the concerts are over for the night Scarlatti had another gig.... he was the infamous anti-Revolutionary subversive known only as The Scarlatti Pimpernel. his audacious deeds in rescuing aristocrats from certain death and smuggling them inside harpsichords across the Alps to safety were the stuff of legends.

Lieder of the Bachs

Spoiler:
Show
The young Johann Bach was quite the tearaway in his quiet hometown of Magdeburg on the Elbe in South Germany. On a Saturday night he, his younger siblings' and various other young bloods ( or Junge Bloden as they were called ) would quaff liters of cheap white wine called Gewurztrouser and then create havoc in the neighborhood. As you would expect they sang loud raucous songs with salacious lyrics, mainly referencing the young ladies of the district and what they would like to do with them.
Recently a tattered notebook containing some of these notorious songs ( or Lieder ) turned up at a flea market in Salzburg; a CD has just been released by the Mediaeval Baebes featuring a dozen of the raunchiest ones. It is available on Naxus for £12.99 and is entitled Lieder of the Bachs

High Plains Snoozer

The chap with no name falls asleep in a bar listening to Classic FM, due to old age and too much soothing music. He is awoken by an angry dwarf.

Ad Break at Hanging Rock

Some soft-focus schoolgirls try to listen to Debussy but it keeps getting interrupted by commercials for stairlifts, Puzzled, they retune to Canberra FM which also broadcasts on the long wave on wireless sets of a certain vintage.

Obviously, anything with Lee Van Clef in it would score well.

A Breve Moment in Time is the story of a young man who, one regrettable night, made a foolish decision to use a breve instead of a semibreve, and his life changed forever. Now after nearly eighteen years of learning to read music he is a different man.

The Tympany of Wolves is a gothic horror fantasy involving a great deal of blood and gore in the back row of the orchestra.

Baton with the Wind tells the story of an orchestral conductor who insisted on his orchestra playing classic pieces at too fast a tempo for his instrumentalists' sensibilities, with dire consequences (especially in the percussion section).

Bach to the Future tells the story of a time-travelling composer who visits orchestras in the future and coaches them on playing his worls better.

Piccinni at Hanging Rock

Spoiler:
Show
it is 1784. some soft focus Parisian schoolgirls are enjoying an al fresco lunch in the Bois de Boulogne. suddenly they hear the plangent sounds of the overture to Iphigénie coming from some nearby bushes. A slight figure emerges and waves his baton at them. It is the famous composer Niccolò Piccinni; he has his bass viol with him and shows the girls his expert fingering

I imagine the vibrato was especially exquisite, and that a lot of plucking was called for.
