The End is Near?

Another article about the death of classical music, this one actually filled with some stimulating ideas. But then why would classical music ever think it could complete with pop music which by its very definition is popular music for the masses? No classical music is classical music. It's a niche market. It's exciting. It's very much alive. And it doesn't need to apologize for being what it is. No, it can't compete with bands like U2 or whoever else sells out stadiums these days, but why would it want to?
