The classical music pianist Maria João Pires arrived at a concert in Amsterdam expecting to play a Mozart concerto. Unfortunately, when the orchestra began to play she realised that she had prepared for the wrong concerto.

 

Interesting to see her reaction, and the conductor urging her to play anyway, in what must be every classical musician's nightmare.

See, that's the problem with classical training: no improvisational skills. :)
