It's Cyber Monday again, and we here at Deceptive Cadence thought it was time to provide a public service to our readership: a survey of the very worst presents we've found online with classical music lovers as the presumed recipients. We're shopping at the intersection of good intention and bad taste.
In creating these picks, we've eschewed the expected — notation-printed socks and ties, T-shirts and baseball caps with terrible puns, G-clef jewelry. (We've left our actual recommendations for outstanding gifts for another day.) Instead, we've sought out more arcane forms of tackiness — and the sillier, the better. Happy shopping!
