Yes, I'd say classical music is still relevant. Many metal musicians have been inspired by it, some even adapt it to make their own sound (Yngwie Malmsteen, for instance). Also, film scores are often based in classical music, and classical works have been sampled countless times. Canon in D Major was sampled in MC Lars' "Flow Like Poe", and gave inspiration to the chord progression in Green Day's "Basket Case".

Yngwie Malmsteen isn't exactly the best indicator of current relevance.

Also, many people actually listen to real classical music. Just by itself.

Yngwie's well known and therefore my example of choice. Also, it's not rare to see me listen to some Beethoven or Grieg.

It will always be relevant, at least until modern music is capable of fulfilling classical music's role institutionally (i.e. in a curriculum). classical music helps perform the function of allowing music students to fundamentally understand structure, evolution, and growth in a practical setting.

Based on album sales, drops in radio stations who play classical music, etc. etc. I'd say it's on the brink of extinction. It will always be around at Universities and such, but more for a select crowd interested in not only the music but the fundamentals and thought processes by the composers. Relevant only to some.

All forms of music are relevant only to some.

When Classical music started out it was only relevant to some.

Which is what BD was saying in the OP.

Is it relevant to the point that is surpasses that some or just only relevant to those few.

The poll doesn't really reflect the OP.
