The classical music world

After reading another one of these "classical music is dying" discussions, I replied:

Many people have no clue about what is going on with the classical music world. The classical music world doesn't really care.

It's not that today's audience is less classical music oriented. It's the young generation that is, and always has been - young people of all times, even hundreds of years ago, were always into popular music - and as people get older, they get to know more classical music, and at some point realise that it's "their thing". Then they try to bestow this 'knowledge' upon their children, and when they fail, they say that classical music is dying.

Grow up!

  • Classical music dies in Israel ... (I don't know about the rest of the world), but in Israel it is almost impassable to get a good classical performance to a good classical work.
    and when you do it cost like 110 shekels !

  • Just wanted to let you know, that there are some good concerts available at www.classiclive.com and they are pretty cheap. I am not sure how well they work with Linux, though.
