OK, So I bit off more than I could chew. I was going to follow up "In the Beginning" with "In the End" - where I would offer at least a suggestion or two for why I think that the active repertoire of "classical" music pretty much went out of business about 35 years ago, with the deaths of Dmitri Shostakovich & Benjamin Britten.
So far, so good - but then I decided to rustle up my own musical examples, with appropriate video, for YouTube posting.
Big mistake. Huge, in fact.
I got absorbed in the task.
