Check out Anton Weinberg's site. He's got lots of great quotes about music and musicality.
He responded to my post about the future of serious classical music on Facebook.
Classical music is in the formative years of a death of a culture which has, in part, been brought about by the emphasis on technique rather than interpretation. The development of a certain stylistic personality in young musicians is a testament to the self deluded training that now inhabits our conservatoires and poses as musicianship.
That's a pretty radical statement, and one with which I agree somewhat. I believe that the "art" of music making is now becoming the "business" of music making. I would ask why What can be done to remedy the problem?
What do you think?
