What you need to know about this programme:
Stand-up comedian and comic maestro Rainer Hersch takes over the CPO. Like, completely and utterly. From Bach to Beethoven to that music on TV you never quite knew the name of, this is “a guaranteed laugh every four bars.” Rainer’s performances have been described as “Monty Python meets the symphony orchestra.” Hilarious, musical, and unmistakably British — 35 million viewers on YouTube can’t be wrong. Come and find out why.
