What gets me is that 200-300 years ago, these guys were passionate about music and everything was different. The instruments themselves produced the
sound - they vibrated and sang. All the sound was true to the instrument itself. There were no speakers to repeat what they were playing just the
resonance of the instrument, which is interesting to think about.
But since their was not MSM like we have today - no MTV, VH1, CMT, etc. - these guys would primarily publish their work and play concerts in front of
very important people, and this is how they were known. They would spend a large portion of their careers creating a symphony. The whole thing was
like what we would call one CD today and it was all one flowing event where parts worked into the whole. It is crazy that they named these things,
symphony 1,2,7, etc.
Can you imagine Tool just calling their CD's by number?
