How My Appreciation of Different Composers Has Changed Over the Years

Interesting. I think mine may be almost a mirror image of that.

TS said...

Mirror image meaning the same, or mirror image meaning the reverse?

TS said...

I think mine displays a move from the romantic to the classical.

I like it, but I'm trying to understand what the units for your Y axis are.

I want to know Y.

TS said...

Why ask Y? (I couldn't resist.) Y is a unit of satisfaction such that Beethoven goes from a 9-ish rating to 7-ish (on a scale of 1-10).

Hmm. Good question. Probably more of a side-to-side mirror than top-to-bottom. The most I listen to J.S. Bach, the less I like Handel. The more I listen to Beethoven, the more I like him. Ever since I heard a clarinet concerto by Mozart that sounded nearly plagiarized from one of his horn concertos, my opinion of him has plummeted.

William Byrd is a treasure, and Shostakovich is a guilty pleasure. Bach, as always, is outstanding in essentially everything.

The deficits in my character are probably revealed by the fact that my first response was: "How did he create that graphic?"

Easy - I just used "PAINT". Start-Programs-Accesories-Paint!
