Videos wot have cheered me up: Morecambe & Wise meet André Previn

In anticipation of a “trying new things” post I’m planning involving classical music, here’s one of the greatest comedy sketches of all time: beloved duo Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise receive a visit from the esteemed André Previn, a.k.a. “Andy Preview”, to conduct a performance of “Grieg’s Piano Concerto by Grieg”.  Although they managed to play it relatively straight (with some notable exceptions — “Pow, he’s in, I like him!”), note various members of “the band” cracking up in the background!
