The Musical Culture Is Changing

Alex James- formerly of Blur- has started writing classical music. He was interviewed on Countryfile last night. He said pop music was like drawing with crayons- and classical music- well, he didn't pursue the analogy but you can see where it's going.

Paul Morley, the rock critic, has been saying the same sort of thing.

The Rock and Roll revolution has run its course.  A new century, searching for styles of its own, is going back to basics. I'm sensing it myself. Suddenly and more or less out of the blue I'm feeling the need for a little Beethoven in my life.
