I can tell you right now, Keys is INFINITELY better than Dare to Dream, at least I think so personally. He performs a few songs off of that album on Love at the Acropolis, so if you like the performances of those songs on that one, I'm sure you'll like the original album versions on Keys as well.

Digging: Adrian Younge - Black Dynamite (Original Motion Picture Score)

This isn't really classical, is it?

It has a lot of classical music and orchestral music elements, you'll see what I mean when you listen.

Never really thought of classical as something people needed a gateway to; the beauty of some of the composers was universal (or so I thought).

Digging: Ayria - Hearts for Bullets

This will not, and can not "bring an all new level of accessibility to classical music". Overstatement of the year from you. People go out of their way to listen to this stuff precisely because they don't want to listen to classical. For them, it's either because it's inflating their Groban collection, or so they can carry on about how listening to it fulfills their classical affinity, both of which are hilariously pitiful things in themselves. Sure, Groban is a cool guy, with a great croon (not the greatest though), and consequently the heartthrob for single and alone women in their 40s, but yeah. Not buying some of the statements here.

"bring an all new level of accessibility to classical music"


What I thought he was trying to say is that the genre of baroque/chamber pop brings a higher level of accessibility to classical music, in the sense that it takes elements from classical and formulates it into a pop-style packaging (classical for those who cant sit through classical, or for those who just like the style of it). There's a few overstatements here like the last sentence, but we all at times say things that probably should have been premeditated.

Yeah, Hernan's explanation is what I was trying to get across with that. Though I can see how you interpreted it that way Jake.
