“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”
Victor Hugo ~ French poet, novelist, and dramatist
What type of music is ‘classical’?
There are many definitions about ‘classical music’. To some, classical music is serious music, and to others, it is music that is confined to rigid rules. Some even describe classical music as music that is not jazz, not popular, not folk, not… and so on. However, none of these truly explain what classical music is. There are a lot of unconventional classical music, e.g. The Typewriter by Leroy Anderson, which is written for a typewriter; classical music that requires the musician to do whatever they want at certain measures during the piece of music, without adhering to rules, and even classical music that could be in the framework of jazz and folk.
In fact, classical music is probably more familiar than we might imagine. It is all around us, be it in restaurants, supermarkets, lifts, advertisements or as theme and incidental music on television. A great deal of film music either directly uses or draws from the 'classical' tradition. A good example of the former would be '2001: Space Odyssey', and of the latter, the many scores John Williams has composed in recent years for blockbusters such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogies.
Has that piqued your curiosity about classical music? Well, the best way to understand and feel what classical music is about is to attend a concert and soak in the music. You will definitely be surprised at just how exciting classical music can be, and the emotions that are stirred up in you!
