After the national success of the original “Classical Rewind”, “Classical Rewind 2” guides viewers through a non-stop tour-de-force of multiple works by the masters.

With playful dancing, dynamic symphonic tunes and even melodies that can break your heart, “Classical Rewind 2” travels through the centuries with delightful visual interpretations of these compositions – sometimes intriguing, often surprising, always engaging.

Conductor David Ogden Stiers (MASH, “The Dead Zone”, Disney’s acclaimed conductor in his own right, brings his own unique perspective into the history of this eternal music – and enjoys himself a little bit in the process. “Classical Rewind 2” is not just music. The visual accompaniment of these classics brings a new approach to many familiar melodies and delightful images for music that may be new and unfamiliar.

The surprises include classic clips of silent movie era stars, Model-T Fords racing to Mozart’s music, a 1960s comic about a dance from 1870 and even a musical interpretation of one of the Marx brothers! “Classical Rewind 2” is a sumptuous visual and sound buffet that invites viewers to dine on the works of the great masters.
