Victor Borge, the legendary pianist, composer and entertainer died yesterday at the age of 91. Borge's unique interpretations of classical works, including getting tangled up in the sheet music and falling off the piano stool, brought joy to all who heard him. We remember the Clown Prince of Denmark with clips of his performances and tape from a 1986 interview with NPR.
