“musicologists are super boring.”

i enjoyed reading Charles Rosen’s lively rebuttal to Richard Taruskin in last week’s New York Review of Books regarding Elliott Carter and music during the Cold War. i don’t know if i have much more to say about it than that and…well, read it i suppose.

basically, i just love seeing musicologists duking it out in a public forum. it’s the best we can do.
