At times I have spoken with young people about the music they like and most of the time I was amazed by their thinking and reasoning. It seems that all the music of the past centuries means nothing to them, except their “idols” as they say. And some have asked me to give them a list of great musicians they should know. Obviously this list is long: Mozart, Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Chopin, Liszt, Purcell, Schubert, Schumann, Gabrieli, Monteverdi, Lulli, Gluck, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Paganini, Berlioz, Dvorak, Mendelssohn… and one could name so many others!
The important thing is to listen to music that imbues the soul with beauty and harmony.
