Music Interpretation - Each to His Own - Each to His Own Level. Articles by Scott Bratcher
The following articles were written this year in 2011. Another one will be posted soon as I plan to write many more. Many critics treat music as though their view is the authority. There is not any final authority on music. The saying "everyone is a critic" rings true. We may align ourselves with critics who mirror our personal tastes. I am not here to declare it is necessarily wrong to adopt a well articulated opinion someone else espouses. There is nothing wrong with it. We do it with friends as well as writers. If it weren't for word of mouth, I never would have listened to some of my favorite music.
These blog pages cover my favorite music. There will be more to follow. The articles were both challenging and fun to write. I can only hope someone might find them amusing, useful or informative. My personal interpretations I offer with the humility that authority denies.
