‘I hate classical music’

This is how Alex Ross Starts his book: Listen to this. Not that he really does not like classical music. On the contrary. He hates not the music, but the name. In an interview he tells us how the name is lacking of passion, is stuffy, remote. While there is a great deal of passion in classical music. In his book he tries to find the connection between classical music and the outside world, our contemporary culture and other forms of musical experiences. There are some links to be find. For example some songs of the Beatles were inspired by John Cage and Stockhausen. And also Bjorg and RadioHead have known a lot of classical music, according to Alex Ross.
