I dig Baroque music.
The reality is that I dig most of the Baroque to Rennasaince to Classical music periods.
Are You a Snob and Refuse to Listen?
So do you consider me a snob because I enjoy it? Let’s talk about that for a moment. You snob.
It shocks me that traditional classical isn’t part of everybody’s favorite kind of music. It saddens me actually. I’m not being snobbish. I truly think it’s a reverse snobbery that people (you?) act uppity and refuse to learn about and enjoy the greatest music that we’ll ever hear on earth.
I’ll repeat: I’m not being snobbish. You are.
To me, it’s easy to enjoy such wondrous music. Not snobbish. It’s snobbish to refuse to listen to it.
Much of this great music you already know and enjoy because it’s heard throughout many major movies (and Bugs Bunny cartoons).
A Challenge to You
There’s no way you can listen to the riffs throughout the vivacious Spring in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, for instance, and not immediately :know the music, enjoy it, and be uplifted by it.
- Recognize the music
- Enjoy it
- and be uplifted by it.
Why don’t you just try a couple of minutes from Spring right now and tell me your reaction in the comments below? I say you’re lying if you don’t enjoy it. Almost all of you will already know the music the moment it starts playing.
See, enjoying the greatest music ever isn’t hard. It’s easy.
It takes a real snob to refuse to listen.
Note: And before you tell me Spring is nice, as is some other classical music, but you think Baroque music is too dreary for you, let me teach you something: Vivaldi’s Spring is from the Baroque period.
