    Are there classic music composers today, who can hold candles to the composers from the past?

      Certainly not to composers like Beethoven, Bach, Mozart.
      There are quite a few brilliant people though. It’s not their fault if they can’t compete with the giants of the past : music has ceased being important for society long ago, which means there’s no much interest in them, to begin with. Today’s focus has moved from the arts to computer science.

        Oh no! The arts must outlive computer science. Otherwise, we are all androids & cyborgs.

        Oh my!
        I answered this… I wonder who I sent it to?
        I said I hope the arts survive over computer science, otherwise we are all destined to be androids or cyborgs… something like that.
