Thread Name: Proper Music?
Subject: RE: Proper Music?
The Brendan Voyage is a good example of happy marriage between Classical and Traditional music.Most classical musicians I've met haven't got an original musical idea in their heads.I like some classical music but can't be arsed with an equal amount of it.I read about Charlie Parker having a serious inferiority complex with classical musicians although no classical player could ever hope to achieve his improvisational virtuosity.I think a lot of non classical musicians have a similar inferiority complex,personally I view classical musicians as rigid rule followers I would never trade in my musical freedom for technical facility.
