Am I being close-minded if my goal is to specialize in a certain period of classical music? For example, in the near future, I will indefinitely put away Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven; I want to focus solely on 20th and 21st century composers. Of course, I always go back to the greats for reference and knowledge, but I mean my main focus will be new composers. Is there anyone else who does this? Am I damaging my musical growth by playing only a certain period of music?
