Home Music Lane

It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

"weren't accepted as legitimate"

HIPs in all music can bite me.

I subscribe to the idea and fundamental realization that every artist understood for centuries - until the post-nuclear/industrial/space age and its inevitable decline brought about it concomitant ideological perversions and distortions.

Specifically, artists always sought to seek and express the greater truth in music. THAT was the ultimate purpose of any artist's career. It was identified by various terms; during the 19th cent, until Schoenberg's break, it was called "beauty". Mahler said, "interesting is easy; beauty is hard".

Any artist of worth looked behind the printed score for the genius of music to be uncovered.

Now, instead, we have excercises in fantasy history being presented as musical truth.

I hate baroque music, but I'll be getting the Karajan. It might help me understand Bach - finally, after all of the screeching HIP's of the Brandenburg's made feel like going to a Thrash Metal concert.
