Partly because it’s a new year, but mostly because no one has beaten me up yet, here are some more toe-curling photographs of classical musicians trying to look cool.
First up are the cellists. For reasons which escape me, cellists appear to favour the great outdoors. Look, here’s one frolicking with his cello in the Alps…
This next cellist has obviously checked out his rival’s publicity photo, and decided that extreme temperatures are a good way to get gigs.
Meanwhile, the chap below has left me momentarily lost for words. Yes I know. It’s unlike me. But really… What can I say?
And now, on to the wealth of embarrassment presented to us by the classical flautist. What is it about flautists? Why can’t they just get themselves photographed fluting somewhere normal?
Here’s another one. I honestly have no idea why this bloke is playing his flute to a koala bear.
Mind you, flute players aren’t nearly as embarrassing as horn players.
I reckon something happens to horn players when they’re presented with a camera. Some strange, irresistible force compels them to do something silly with their instrument.
I think it’s about time we had some unnecessary nudity, don’t you?
You may have noticed the leafy garland. String players, when nude, seem to rather like them. This lot have taken the garland to a whole new level.
And finally, here’s a picture of a man with a viol.
