Have modern musicians become obsessed by unnecessary musical pseudoscience? When interpreting pieces so often we analyze each phrase in how music of that time period should sound, trying to dig into the composers mind by in slavery following each mark in written in the sheets.
but are we not actually wasting our time by setting up a lot of rules and boundary conditions based on nothing else by pure pseudoscience that probably the composers themselves would have been annoyed at? where the end point only is a lot of boringly similar interpretations?
