Classical Music for the Coming Generations

If Classical music want to be passed down for Generations like the Millennials and Generation Z; It needs to more appling for them.  New Musicians like Vanessa-Mae are pioneering but there should be more fouscing on that.  

Classical Music is for all Generations, but not for all people.

Can you elaborate a bit further why you believe that the Classical Music has not "passed down" for Generations like the Millennials and Generation Z and why the only or main way to do so is people like Vanessa Mae, who is not even considered as a Classical Musician (perhaps an abominable caricature of this)?

For heaven's sake, parla: It

For heaven's sake, parla: It is brodksy, asking the same question he always asks. It is not seriously meant. 

Thank heavens!

Ah, Dr. Brodsky managed to sneak in again. I thought he was blocked out for good. 

Let's see how far he can go this time.

Apart from the fact it is a pretty standard Brodsky opening gambit.......both in terms of style and content.

I take it you mean that it lacks the appropriate Brodskyesque technological fingerprint? Well, alright. I'll reholster my pistol. Let's see how it plays out........

But if whoever-it-is starts

But if whoever-it-is starts banging on about Jimmy Saville and the lefty-hippies at the BBC, I think you'll have to concede.......

Only keen that newcomers to the forum shouldn't be scared off by unknown (to them) ghosts of the past.

Quite right. I will bear that in mind in future.

I have heard this argument

I have heard this argument many times in the past. Why is that art / music must be be lowered or developed to a certain level, i.e always at the basis level.  Isn't this whole idea of levelling down everything to a lower level quite boring now.
