The German transport minister, Peter Ramsauer, has recorded a CD of himself playing Mozart on the piano, hoping that it will calm drivers suffering from road rage.The Local reports that the 57-year-old, who initially wanted to pursue a career in music, will sell the soothing album for €6 ($8.25). Entitled “Adagio in the Car,” Ramsauer is hoping that it will reduce road rage.
It’s not the first instance in recent times of classical music being used by European transport authorities. Reuters reports that last month Macedonian buses would be playing classical pieces during the frantic morning commutes.
Bus drivers had been ordered to chose classical instead of the pounding beats of Balkan turbo folk music which is extremely popular in Macedonia.
