Hi everyone, firstly I would like to thank you all of you who has invoved in reading my topics/music in the past. I have a question to ask every ones opnion about the popularity of piano recital as now days vs classical-pre 1890 period. I came up with a conclusion that in old days there werent any radio station or instrument that plays recorded music as compared to modern days(digital recording). In the old days, the majority of population found music or salon reictal in hall/small gathering places as part of sociel life. Therefore, piano was one of the main focus. I would say, at the time there are more people owning piano per population as compared to now days( correct me if i am wrong). But only FEW musicians were produced during the old days, therefore, this allows them to be more popular and as a result of creating there own fame. since there wernt any radio stations or commuicatoin devices, a small group recital is allowed. The competition between the musicians were less fierce as compared to now days. These days, there are more varities in music, there fore the main focus of each group is higly diversified or I would say- diffused. As a result, you become less famous and less popular. The classical music is overtaking by the modern music(pop, rocks...XXX). Whats your say????
