Did 'classical' music (call it what you will) die in the mid 70's with the deaths of Shostakovich and Britten. Is it now just a museum piece. What percentage of the world's population could tell you the name of a piece written in the last 20 years, or hum it's tune. Who are todays composers in...
Have been to a few composer´s museums
in the past few years:
Elgar´s near Worchester;
Dvorak´s in Prague;
Smetana´s in Prague;
Jaroslav Jezek´s in Prague;
Ravel´s in Montfort l´Amaury near Paris
Nielsen´s on Funen (actually only saw the building
from the outside, though, since it was closed)...
