Well, again (as I already told Jack Palmer...) keep in mind that we
have been around for quite a while...and are thus ready to accept
classical music as, if nothing else, a somewhat less frenetic choice
than either current pop music or the "rock'n'roll" of our youth!
I was thinking more of more recent generations (say, those born in
the seventies, whose youth didn't include "rap" or "hip-hop" or usw.)...
who like almost all youthful music listeners, dismissed classical
music as "music by old dead guys. Shortly thereafter, they noticed
that all the IMPORTANT people (whom they wished to replace...)
listened to much more Beethoven than Led Zeppelin...!
