Greetings, musicalologists! Edit

P. D. Q. Wiki is a collaborative effort to reveal all the musical spoofs in Peter Schickele's works.


Skeptics claim that P.D.Q. Bach, the last and oddest of Johann Sebastian Bach's twenty-odd sons, never actually lived, but how can we dispute the extensive research of Professor Schickele, who wrote the composer's definitive biography? This wiki documents the many musical inspirations he drew on, including those that were written after his lifetime. Few other composers have achieved this level of plagiarism.

P.D.Q. Bach Books, DVDs, and CDs are available from the Schickele Shoppe. Buying from there is the best way to support Dr. Schickele.

An earlier version of the content was based on "The Key of P.D.Q." by Gary McGath.
