In David Scheel's concerts, classical music is turned on its head. At any time you may hear a popular folk song played in the styles of Mozart, Rachmaninoff, or blues, or he may play a piece by Bach in the right hand and one by Andrew Lloyd Webber in the left, at the same time.

A miniature concerto based on the 20 worst tunes ever written is another favourite, as is a hilarious translation of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, all delivered in a huge variety of comic voices and accents.

But in between times he will unwrap one of the classics, or one of his own highly lyrical compositions, and reveal his true quality as a pianist. Constantly updated with fresh material, Don't Shoot Me... continues to enjoy enormous success worldwide, and it is perhaps small wonder that David has so often been compared with the late, great Victor Borge.


"The only show in town that can satisfy lovers of classical music and stand up comedy at once" - San Francisco Chronicle
