If I'm in a conversation with our average music listener and the person says today's music I will assume that individual means what's on the radio. But being on this site, we're not in a conversation with your average music listener. So it seems kind of ridiculous that a moderator of this site would say today's music and not mean it as in music being made/listened to today.
That's not really a problem. The question in the OP specifically addresses that point and I'm pretty sure she meant for this discussion to apply to those outside of our circle. It was meant to talk about the average casual music listener.

The music enthusiast circle is WAY bigger than you're giving it credit for. Those people don't just all of a sudden stop counting because they're not the lowest common denominator.

...no.

I guess you didn't read any of my points, which explicitly discussed the nature of artistic relevance.

Just give up— you're wrong.

The initial question posed by BD has nothing to do with artistic relevance though.

Most people use Facebook and Twitter, not forums. Just because we're in that niche doesn't mean everyone is. This thread was never relevant.

Yeah it's absolutely relevant and I agree with all of you.

But we have to talk even about the role of classical music in the advertising and marketing in general.

In the cinema for example, the use of modern classical pieces is not random, in fact the classical music is the only one that can forwad collectively a lot of feels and tell alone a lot of stories.


A practical example: Forrest Gump opening scene
