Classical music's Public Enemy No. 1 has floppy ears, wags a tail, and will not be restrained.
That's what we serious classical music aficionados from around the world learned this week, anyway, via damning video evidence from a ticketed performance by the Vienna Chamber Orchestra at the Grand Theater of Ephesus in İzmir, Turkey. To the audience that had sat down, it was to be an innocent night of watching and listening to an orchestral performance at the 31st International Izmir Festival. For this hardened quadruped, it was an opportunity to spit in the face of culture itself.
Just kidding. This dog is the single most adorable thing to happen to orchestral music ever, and he stole the damn show. Just look at those eyes. How could you not applaud?
