P. D. Q. Bach is a fictitious composer invented by musical satirist "Professor" Peter Schickele. In a gag that Schickele has developed over a four-decade-long career, he performs "discovered" works of this forgotten member of the Bach family. Schickele's music combines parodies of musicological scholarship, the conventions of Baroque and classical music, and slapstick comedy.

The name "P. D. Q." is a parody of the three-part names given to some members of the Bach family that are commonly reduced to initials, such as C. P. E., for Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. PDQ is an initialism for "pretty damn (darn) quick".

Schickele regularly tours, and has recorded on Vanguard and Telarc labels.

Been to a couple of concerts. Great fun although I probably miss a lot by not being more musically literate.

Yes, PDQ BACH LIVE  works.  Sorry for the delay.  Not a very good chatter, eh?  How about you now?
