“The Worlds Greatest Music”
is a Gross Exaggeration
2nd Feb. 2018
It claims “classical composers, musicians and their works”.
Classical music has a lighter, clearer texture than Baroque music and is less complex.
It is mainly homophonic—a clear melody above a subordinate chordal accompaniment.
Classical: c. 1730–1820 Romantic: c. 1780–1910 Baroque: c. 1600–1750
But Classic FM plays much more than CLASSICAL
It even plays modern film and TV themes and scores
Yet it is mostly limited, considered by many as decadent, and certainly racist in its outlook.
Playing the same music over and over again
Though was once heard to play “Deep River”
“Deep River” is an anonymous spiritual of African-American origin.
Count how many non white,non european
or traditional folk or protest musicans get to have their music played.
Yet all are Classics !
