What is interesting to me is how classical music generally isn’t terribly appreciated. Is this just a fad being documented in the article?
I should say that I only got into opera after 1) years of piano 2) years of listening to classical music 3) formal vocal training 4) vocal performance in sacred music 5) going to the opera. – I tend to be a bit picky about new things. –
I bring my background up in order to ask about the general question of tastes in music. I tend to think they’re declining, but I don’t have any solid proof of this, and the opera story makes me wonder. One doesn’t need tons of education in order to appreciate music, but one has to wonder how little education or exposure one needs to appreciate certain types of music.
