It is safe to assume that younger generations don't have the appreciation for classical music that their grandparents and great-grandparents did; but that might all change thanks to the No. 9 Allegro Music Video. It shows a group of sexy Asian dancers shaking their booties to Dvorak's famous symphony. At the climax of the piece, they even begin to twerk, which would do Miley proud.

Created for B-Classic, a Belgian music festival which promotes classical music, No. 9 Allegro Music Video is part of a larger movement dubbed 'The Classical Comeback.' It is a creative format that encourages public submissions to help show just how relevant classical music still is today. Radia DJ Sam de Bruyn, says, "I'm not convinced that youth are not interested in classical music. I think that it's simply more difficult for them to discover."
