Wow! I can't even imagine such a level of annoying!

That said, classical music poseurs are infinitely more obnoxious than punk poseurs.

Present company excluded of course.

Once he starts voting Republican he'll realize that he was a classical music poseur all along.

I voted no on this one.

No one (in general), by choice, goes out of their way to listen to classical music any more. Tastes change. Today, classical music basically has a niche of performances at amphitheaters so that bougie people can spend lots of money to feel classy and sophisticated and pretend that they enjoy and appreciate what they're hearing. Fitting for a style of music that originally was mostly commissioned to be created and performed by rich nobleman and royalty of old.

Classical music, like most genres of music in the past that were popular, has made its imprint in the form of influence, but as for its relevance today? Nah, it ain't. If I want to hear music that is interesting and compelling, I'd sooner reach for latter-career recordings from Miles and Coltrane than Mozart and Cannabich.

lol where did you even find this one?

My parents are Russian piano nerds and I played sonatinas by Mozart, Clementi and Cimarosa as a little kid, but never heard of this guy.

Sort of agree with your main point, with quite a few caveats. Voted no too.

One caveat is that when people say "classical music" today, what they typically mean is bland, pompous and precious orchestral kitsch (often written by the British of all people, the country known in the 19th century as Das Land ohne Musik) that's closer to Hollywood soundtracks than anything "classical" I listen to these days.

I'll take 20th century classical over free jazz tbh.
