My beliefs concerning music could be seen as either unconventional or extremely outdated. First and foremost I believe that music is a method of expression, and that a composer best expresses through form. The Baroque era offers the finest music from a challenging and technical perspective, but also the most heartfelt and emotive music as well. Granted, all of what I’ve written above is my personal, uneducated, and naive opinion—this is in no way a proven fact. Music and emotions are subjective. But if many people agree on one opinion, does that not make it a fact in their minds?
