This pretty much sums up why I love classical music
Okay let’s talk about this
Complexity always seems to be a point of defense that orchestral musicians use to argue the superiority of classical music over pop music (which isn’t necessarily superior).
However, in this example, the Beethoven excerpt is the full piano score that encompasses every single melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic detail, while the Bieber excerpt is only the melody and reduced accompaniment. If we were to reduce the Beethoven the way the Bieber has been reduced it would look like this:
So, I guess what I am saying is that if you’re going to bash another genre of music because classical music ain’t in with the youngsters, I would just not. Because pop music is intricate in different ways than orchestral music is, and if you have a hard time believing that you can read this article about Sandy Vee (mixer for David Guetta, Taio Cruz, Pitbull, Rihanna, and Katy Perry) and his method for writing hit singles. Katy Perry’s hit, “Firework” ended up having 177 separate tracks that Vee mixed using Pro Tools.
Moral of the story is I have an aural skills final tomorrow and I really don’t want to study for that so here’s a different perspective make what you will of it.

it upsets me to no end when people say that classical music is “calming”
i can find a piece of classical music for every emotion that i can think of
and there are many emotions ive found in classical music that i dont even have a name for because thats the only place ive felt them
it makes me sad that not everyone is capable of experiencing that
