(This is the English translation of a 6 part lecture that I gave in Mainz about the possibilities of what I call „atopical“ music)
THE LONG GOODBYE
It’s downright impossible to talk about the end of something. Endings tend to come later than one thinks, and when they come early, one usually didn’t expect them.
But still, I want to say it here, because it is true and because it is important to understand the full ramifications of this truth: that what we call “Classical Music” is…perhaps not completely dead, yet. But completely futile.
