How to Listen to Modern Music Without Earplugs
If you thought How to Stay Awake During Anybody's Second Movement was the least bit funny, you'll die laughing at David Walden's second volume, tackling the last musical taboo -- the subject that virtually no one has dared expose to teh public eye -- namely, Modern Serious Music of the 20th Century. Walden faces the truth honestly with such chapter headings as Why Do Most People Hate Modern Music? and The Clothespegs of Modern Music -- Where to Hang it. This book is redolent with hitherto-unrevealed revelations of the 20th century. It's like the National Enquirier looking at the music of the 20th Century in a special edition, with headlines like: Wagner: Sperm Donor of Modern Music. ©1999, 154 pages.
