Kinda cool. I kept hoping they'd play something else instead of just running up and down the neck of their instruments, but I guess that was the point

Can't say I really enjoy that one. It is different for sure... This one is great though, especially the third part starting from ~10:40:

One of the greatest sounds in the entire world is that of an orchestra tuning.

A breakdown of classical music's primary U.S. constituencies in the year 2015:

0.1%: high-grade performers skilled enough to earn a self-sustaining income by performing live and/or selling recordings

1.9%: aristocratic patrons, intellectuals, historians, and scholarly types that comprise the stereotype envisioned by the masses as representative of the social side of classical music

50%: near-death senior citizens who spend their concerts asleep or coughing

8%: 18-40 year-old ugly, dandruff-eating day-walkers who have no hobbies or interests other than classical music, and sadly, are not good enough at playing it to perform for a living, but are struggling to accept that reality.

10%: 40-60 year-old smelly, ugly, dandruff-eating day-walkers who have few hobbies or interests other than classical music, reluctantly accept that they are not good enough to perform for a living, and cope with it by poisoning all social situations with their terrible opinions.

30%: Asians

I don't know much about classical music (I wish I did, but studying it seems very daunting), but I love me some Brahms and Debussy.

It is also the basis for many annoying pop songs

Wagner. That's what I see you getting into. Opera.

Yeah, I actually am a bit fascinated by the concept of opera. I downloaded some a while back but have yet to really dive in.

Bizet's "Carmen No. 2" is one of my favorite things in the world.

I'm listening to Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, and it's like, "Ohhh, so that's where John Williams got all his ideas for Star Wars."
