    What are you watching?

    More than 2 million people saw this music video: twerking on... classical music!

     
    This really needs to be seen to be believed! A new project created by Belgian-based B-Classic, entitled: ‘The Classical Comeback’.

    The first in a series of music film clips aimed at giving classical music the same recognition as pop and rock – by combining the timeless emotion of classical music with the visual talents of a contemporary director.

    Belgian director Raf Reyntjens, known for his work on music videos for Belgian electronics artist Stromae, was asked to direct a crew of female dancers -- in the seductive style of a K-Pop music video, to Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 Allegro Con Fuoco.

    What better way to raise the profile of "invisible" classic music to a new crowd than with a sexy, high-energy clip, a la Psy?

    More than 2 million people have been watching the clip on YouTube. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g10DqPbbUuw)

    The clip is generating a huge buzz on the internet, not only because of the peculiar choreography but also because of the sexist comments and the debate on classical music for youngsters.
