    This one's mildly off topic but I was curious if there are any other
    Comedian Harmonists fans in this group. For those who are unfamiliar,
    this was a pre-WWII German quintet who sang with only piano
    accompaniment. They were very polished with tight harmonies
    and....they "were" comedic. The relation to classical music came via
    their transcriptions of various pieces including Perpetuum mobile,
    Brahms' Hungarian Dance #5, Boccherini Minuet, etc.
    Anyone wanting an introduction might want to consider the BROINC
    available recordings on Mastertone (@ $1.99 per) and the movie made
    about the group which was titled The Harmonists (a very touching film
    I might add.)I believe there was a documentary done with actual
    footage of the group but I've yet to see that one.
