"With Victor Borge, Gerald Hoffnung, and now Anna Russell gone, Peter Schickele seems the sole remaining classical music comic….This is a filmed concert in Houston (hence the title) complete with Professor Schickele’s trademark late entrance sliding down a rope, and his lectures on PDQ’s music between each piece. Like Groucho, he sprays the audience with non-stop jokes."

- Ray Hassard, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Jan./Feb., 2007
