Victor Borge was a Danish virtuoso classical pianist who escaped to the USA at the start of World War Two.

Learning English via popular movies he started out as a pianist who, over time, incorporated comedy to create a unique style of entertainment.

As his recordings and trademark routines became more widely heard, he developed a following on both sides of the Atlantic.

This 2CD set comprises musical performances as well as comedy routines. Borge was a complete ‘one-off’, very much of his time, but whose humour transcends the passing of time.


REVIEWS

One wonders what sort of response this sophisticated kind of comedy would get from today's audiences who might well be mystified by someone as erudite as Borge, especially with his straight faced demeanour and with the requirement to know something about the music involved. Some timeless comedy intermingled with some straight interpretations of standards make for a very enjoyable set. - Gerry Stonestreet (In Tune Issue 353)
