Classical music is boring. Is classical music boring?
As practicing opera singers, we meet these prejudications almost every day - and we also have to admit, these are not always causeless... but the world of classical music is so much more fascinating! There has to be some reason why we put our lives on it...
In my discourses I always try to show what is the power that makes the Don Giovanni a living, extremely interesting masterpiece even after more than two hundred years, how can the classical music be enjoyable also in the XXI. century, to child and to matured as well.
I do it understandable, as an "accomplice", beleiving without any doubt in the words of the Hungarian writer, István Örkény:
"If somebody does not understand something, try to read again. If it's not understandable even after the second time - the problem is in the novel. There are no bad readers just bad novels!" - and there are no bad audience just bad performances!
