Fun to hear this again -- thanks for sharing. I was a child prodigy of the typewriter.

Good fun. Well done. Does us good to laugh at our, oh so serioso selves. Four minutes is enough though......

Really? Leroy Anderson's The Typewriter dates from 1950 and Wikipedia says Penderecki's dates from 1961-2.
