I ask you In which time??

efecctively more than ever to day there are multiples faccilities to hear music, but I ask you....at what time?? or in which time?, for example, last weekend after 10 years more or less I've heard Beethoven's Choral Symphony in an excellent recording, fortunatelly: Vienna Symphony Orch., conducted by Eliahu Inbal, a Denon recording, but I think the next time would be in year 2026, if I'm live at that time! I want but lamentably I (or we) don't have time! oscar.olavarria

 

Best time in history of virtual reality.

I can undersdand you, Oscar. I cannot recall when it was the last time I attended a proper concert of Beethoven's Ninth or when I saw a decent Opera production live.

No wonder that, nowadays, virtually everything can be heard, in any possible form, in any possible place, in any possible way at a cost that is widely affordable...at any rate.

"The children will eventually encounter the f sharp minor" ....

but some grandchildren might have already countered the 4 Pieces, Op. 32 ...

The f-sharp minor can wait...(Prokofiev too).

In this article of N.Y Times, the key phrase is this..."-and to earn some extra income" (3rd page, 2nd paragraph). What any musician can do for some extra bucks can be within the range of the wildest imagination, particularly in an age where, as the the same article underlines..."it is hard to find a full-time job". Besides, there is no wonder if..."a classical music concert can be quite scary where you can't make much noise"...
