The Kids Could Be Alright: Classical Music Should Appreciate Its Forefathers
Tokyo politicians hit back at Donald Trump tweet about Mexico factories
Where the status of classical music is subject to a much-heated debate among listeners, it should be noted that someone, somewhere, is still appreciating and contributing to the classical zeitgeist.
Recent events, though, speak to a much more tragic truth.
The Met Opera is trying to keep its head afloat and a similar battle unfolds for the Minnesota Orchestra.
And to continue, the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera
cannot afford a fall season, along with the Baltimore Lyric Opera that has to cut back to a single production for their coming season.
But while some of these orchestras find ticket sales dropping, places like (Le) Poisson Rouge find success in their own ensemble, which performs tributes to some of the contemporary or modern--and not-so modern--giants of the genre (like
Bartok, Greenwood and Dessner, the latter two having a popular rock background).
