Douglas Back does Flight Of The Bumblebee and the William Tell Overture, but this is more gentile. Los Indios Tabajaras used to do this with two guitars.



100 years ago they thought this was normal:

Это американское нот отрава. Вы передадите отрава к миру. Поздравления.

President Harding wrote:Это американское нот отрава. Вы передадите отрава к миру. Поздравления.
Americans in those days prided themselves on travesty and desecration.

You can find arrangements for ragtime orchestra with the words "Travesty" and "Desecration" in the titles.

In an earlier era, Gottschalk's most famous work--"The Banjo"--was entitled "The Banjo: Grotesque Fantasie"

Did you ever notice that Gottschalk stole his ending from Stephen Foster, but the whole song "Buttons and Bows" rips off Gottschalk?

Can folk play classical?

If they could, that should be a thread topic. Idea

But the answer is probably "No" by definition.

Can folk instruments play classical?

That's a different question.

The pinhed said to Svetlana "Real folk music is easy to play."

Svetlana said "I don't play real folk music." bounce

I think maybe you have confused classicals being folk for folk being classical.

[Granted, so far on this thread no real folk have turned up]

I have confused no thing.  I am free to interpret the Topic title in accordance with the purview of the Tkon Empire's last guardians.

Here an actual Volk plays Mozart--then Mozart plays Mozart (not the best piano, though--he was doing the show in a bar).
