Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 Gets a Sexy Music Video

Antonín Dvorák must be turning in his grave. In an attempt to give classical music the same recognition as pop and rock, the folk over at B-Classic mash together timeless symphonies with twerking modern-day interpretative dance. The first of such Classical Comebacks is a music video featuring the girls from South Korea pop-dance outfit Waveya as they bump and grind to the fourth movement of Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9. Be amused and/or flabbergasted at the video below.
