It's not only Radiohead, no, I do love classical music as well! In fact, they both have something
It's not everyone's taste, at least not today. But why? There's so much in it! Classical music
is seen as boring today! How unfair! But I do have to agree again, you've got to take your time
and listen carefully to it.
For all those of you who think classical music is boring and uncool: Sorry, there's no one who
can help you ;-)
The genius of former composers is still totally out of reach by anyone today. I don't think there'll
ever be people like that these days. In our hectical, breathless, restless, commercial, hypocritical
world! Uah! Wail! ;-)
So the question is, what is ingenious? And which composers are great? I know some people who'll never
understand that I'm not a fan of Brahms. Ok, he's got some good pieces, I'm not denying that!
But I think you can hear how hard he's been working. He's been a great worker, but not a genius!
The greatest genius for me is maybe Schubert.
Oh, and for all those ignorants:
Classical music is not just Mozart.
If I find the time I'll put some mp3 files up here for you to get you going with some great pieces
I personally like very much!
For those of you who really can't stand classical music, maybe you at least try ut
the Gulda Cello concerto! You'll be surprised!!!
