I want to share with you a YouTube Concert in tribute to one of my very favorite performers, Victor Borge. Victor’s secret was that he was both a brilliant comedian and a virtuoso pianist – and he never let his comedy get in the way of great piano playing, or his great music get in the way of brilliant comedy. He was known as The Clown Prince of Denmark and The Great Dane. So let me get out of the way now, and invite you to enjoy a most unique and wonderful artist, preserved through the magic of YouTube.
To end with a grand finale, one of Victor Borge’s most famous pieces, Phonetic Punctuation, performed here by Victor with Dean Martin.
I hope you have enjoyed this concert/tribute as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Victor was a true master, and is very much missed by many, including me.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, responses and memories in the comments.
