N.B. I’m back! I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been studying for the GRE, and taking it, but now (thank all that’s good, true and beautiful) it’s all over, so I’m hoping to be able to post a little more frequently.

The “classical” music columnist for Slate yesterday posted an article called “A Grand Tour of Contemporary Music: All the new noise explained,” which is an interesting overview of the current state of “classical” music. He provides some good historical context and then describes three broad movements he feels the music of the day is following and which are attracting a “youngish” and “hippish” audience. Good thoughts–a bit long but worth the read.
