How is it not? Anyone who listens to pop, rock, hip-hop, Jazz, and some electronic music understand that classical is fused with these and many other genre's very often. Not all appreciate the hard work that goes into a live orchestra recording, mostly do to a lack of understanding; but anyone who is into MUSIC, and doesn't listen simply for self gratification loves to relax, or feeds off the energy of good classical numbers.

Answer these series of questions that are in the OP not the thread title. Every new person comes in and says "how is it not?"

Without realizing the context in which she posed the question.

In comparison with today's music (pop, rock, metal, electronica, etc). Does classical music still have a place amongst today's audience, or has it been relegated to more specific listeners (i.e. music students, people learning instruments, elderly people)?

WHY or WHY NOT?

Yes because it still gets recognition as a genre and is well known.

**** outta here DJ, you've lost this one.

One time my friend tried to claim that since "the only people who listen to classical are those who play it", it is no longer relevant or even exists anymore. Much the same, he went on to say, as "caveman music".

It doesn't get recognition in comparison to top 40.

Work on your damn reading comprehension.

Um, work on yours? I don't see anything about top 40 in here.

I know there are not a whole lot of people on MB who are active listeners of classical music, at least not to the extent that I am. But I know you all have opinions on everything else music related, so I'd like to hear your answer to my question.

EDIT: I have included a poll to get a more specific consensus, but I really encourage you to discuss why you voted YES or NO in this thread and why.

You lose. Bye bye.

What do you think today's music means? Top 40, the popular stuff, by today's standards. Mainstream radio.

People like you make me sick.

the original question is stupid because classical was never relevant in the way pop music is

the working class never went to see Mozart

I guess that's the discussion she wanted to have.
