We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That strikes me as a Frank Zappa like representation of Classical Music. Impeccable technician ('s) with a few riffs that scour the soul, otherwise too disparate to catch the attention of the groveling masses who don't have 10,000 prelude intros in their memory to context this with.
Sibelius is much like Mahler - you either like his music or you don't. I'm one who doesn't like either one of them. As both of them had to compete with the spectacle of opera as envisioned by Wagner, Mendelssohn, Rimsky-Korsakov, etc. While Mahler went somewhat "dark", Sibelius went in the opposite direction with a somewhat outre approach to symphony - neither of which I care for.
Hey, my opinion and we all know where opinions come from. :>)
