Young People deserve an Explanation
Young people deserve a mixed diet of classical and transient music. Classical music needs to be explained as music of a particular period of history. Popular and classical music of the period needs to be played and explained, just the same as music or 2005 classical and transient music needs to be explained. There was an orchestra professor at Northwestern who played Shostakovich to his children, so that they would except 20th century, modern music. Now, Shostakovich seems calm. The whole science and study of music is consonance and dissonance. Consonance and Dissonance is a good starting point for young people. All the things that have been going on in classical music are now going on in transient music of 2005.
