Happy Birthday, Peter!

Peter SchicklePDQ Bach

It's the birthday of Peter Schickele (1935)! A Julliard-trained musician who writes good stuff under his own name, he's probably most famous for his "discovery" of JS Bach's youngest son - the incomparable PDQ Bach, composer of such works as Oedipus Tex, Iphigenia in Brooklyn, The Abduction of Figaro, and innumerable shorter works. I saw Schickele in concert a few years back - it was amazing fun!

I assume someone warned you not to arrive late (assuming Schickele still does that shtick).
