Seeing rock through a classical lens
Sunday Arts, July 1, 2012
What better than his portrait to illustrate music critic Zach Lewis’ piece on his new-found appreciation of rock n’ roll as he begins to hear heavy classical influences? And as usual, Levy added just the right twist.
Classical music may or may not make you smarter, but it almost certainly will change the way you hear pop music.
Spend even a little time studying the works of the major composers and you’ll gain not only an education but also a whole new appreciation for the music of today. Alternatively, if you’re a classical aficionado, you may be surprised to find how easy it is to branch out, without leaving your comfort zone.
