Should we hold Warner Brothers to account?
Today I was listening to the magnificent William Tell Overture by Rossini. But parts of it were inextricably linked in my mind to cartoons. From the opening bars which inevitably make me think of horses (or anything) running or being chased to the storm at sea.
This is true of many great classical pieces. Should I be happy that Warner Brothers contributed to my love of classical music or annoyed that for an entire generation of young people classical music is “ruined”?
What pieces do you remember from or associate with cartoons?
