Marc-André Hamelin Plays Doucet's Chopinata and Isoldina

Here are two lovely novelty treatments of classical music warhorses: Chopinata and Isoldina by Clément Doucet. Marc-André Hamelin plays them superbly, and if you're interested in playing any works of Doucet, you can find the sheet music on IMSLP. [Update: it looks like the scores are blocked on IMSLP because of pending copyright issues] The Isoldina in particular is sure to get more than a chortle out of most audiences.
