I have been tweeting on weekends about Western Classical Music and learning to appreciate it. Some folks have rightly pointed out that Twitter is a very difficult medium to impart as well as imbibe anything useful and lasting, and that I should be writing blog posts about it instead.
The challenge for me is that every blog post I write is like a composed Sonata Form. It will take a lot of effort from my side to write a series of posts about WCM appreciation. Depending upon the number of folks who are seriously interested, I’m willing to consider doing it.
This series of posts would be much like my Favorite Films (A-Z) series of posts that appealed to more film enthusiasts than I could ever imagine.
Note that I am not a ‘learned scholar’ of any sort, just an amateur enthusiast who is passionate about music in general, and WCM in particular.
I also know this blog has lost almost all of its regular readers, thanks to many factors, many of them primarily because of me.
So I am writing this teaser post to gauge the level of interest in WCM appreciation and the extent of my audience. If you happen to read this, and are deeply and seriously interested, just leave a comment. I will run this post for a week or two, and depending upon the comments, will decide whether to dive in and do a series of posts or just ramble on aimlessly on Twitter.
