cartoons & classics

Want to save this amazing twitter thread of classical music in cartoons for a few reasons:

One, it shows how much music we miss in music school (Juventino Rosas!?!! I would have assigned that tune to Strauss or Mozart in a second) that was popular and in use at the time;

Two, how musical affect is generated: Grieg being used for tension goes back generations, but each generation gets its own coding of these pieces to images (e.g. Wagner and “Kill the wabbbbit!”, which means that I don’t take that bit of Wagner particularly seriously).
