orchestra swaps instruments

Not sure how it is that I've never come across this before... back in the seventies the Portsmouth Sinfonia formed as a musical experiment. Here, they swap instruments and attempt to play Thus Spoke Zarathustra (better known to most of us as "that awesome bit from 2001: A Space Oddysey". Anyway, I nearly hurt myself laughing at the result...
