I know whats wrong with classical music.Whats wrong with classical music is not marketing or that audiences are not sophisticated wnough for it, the problem with classical music is that No.1 The old days when performers where also composers are gone No.2 The days when performers improvised when playing a piece written by another composer by adding their own cadenzas etc are olso gone. No.3 performers today most notably violinists are two sterile with there playing,its like they are two afraid to attack their instrument,in my opinion violinists should be violin slayers as well as violin players No.4 Some violinists as well as the classical music industry are not open to new ideas,in my opinion the classical music industry today does not allow creativity and freshness as in jazz,rock pop and hip hop. No.5 Composers today should start composing real music and by real music I don't mean the old 17th century wiggish stuff,but I also don't mean music that seems like someone filled a balloon with musical notes threw it at a blank canvas and thats the score, random notes scattered across the score that when played sound like absolute s**t. In order for classical music to get back on its feet it needs to allow more creativity and freshness and bring back the days of Paganinni and Vivaldi,Bach,Beethoven and Mozart. And if Classical music does this then maybe the pop music industry will stop putting out the garbage its putting out,and the world will be listening to great music once again.
