   schema:reviewBody ""Moribund Music: Can Classical Music be Saved sets out to answer frequently asked questions about the future of classical music. It addresses the question of whether popular music has taken its place and if so, how much this matters; and explores the origins of the split between classical and popular music, the rise of youth culture and the concept of elitism, together with the consequences of these changes. The phenomenon of "crossover" music is addressed, and the arguments in favour of, and against, its use as an introduction to classical music for new audiences are put forward. In a wide-ranging discourse, Carolyn Beckingham tackles many of the issues that divide music lovers, including audience behaviour and the place of music in schools." "This book is essential reading for all those interested in how music plays an essential and informative role in everyday life."--Jacket." ;
