The majority of people, just want to "Enjoy" music, which is why composers like Chopin and company are popular- their works are very lyrical, and often agitated.

This is why composers such as Boulez, Schoenberg, and others like them have such a hard time- people are not willing to step out from their musical cacoons and see that music isn't really just a melody over an alberti bass.

Honestly, I dont find Bach's music very moving or...to me he lacks a kind of variety. Sometimes, after hearing it over and over, it's rather motonomous and dull. He just doesn't capture my interest whenever I listen to him. It's like I dont absorb any of his music. If I had a choice, I would choose Beethoven over Bach anyday.

But anyways, I do agree that music should not just be judged based solely on its sound or appeal.

As Liszt said, "Music is enough for a lifetime. But a lifetime is not enough for music."

Rachmaninoff said that, actually. (Pianomuse?)

You're right. First he's not in the 50. Now I'm adding insult to injury by attributing his quote to Liszt.
