Well, Rognvald, you can keep beating on that straw man if it feels satisfying.
I answered your request for clarification about what I meant by my statement.
I noticed that you interpreted what I said to be contrary to what you think, even though I have not explicitly contradicted anything you have said, I only agreed with some of Andrei’s statements in my initial post .
I also noticed that you applied what I said to the concert in your example when I said that I could not speak to why the seats were empty in that concert but gave two possible reasons, which you say could not be the case. I said nothing about the string quartet’s program, so don’t put words in my mouth that I considered it unimaginative. I did not say that because in my clarification I was not referring to your sample concert. I also did not call you an elitist, but you put those words in my mouth too.
I also noticed that my example of disrespect was an “outlier”, but your single concert empty hall was not...even though the concerts in my area are selling out and there are so many to choose from that you have to be careful how you schedule.
To me, it appears that your mind is made up, and further discussion seems pointless, since no contrary evidence is acceptable. There is always a reason it has no validity. I guess since you seem to enjoy putting words in my mouth, you can continue the conversation without me.
When the sun shines, bask.
Classical Guitar forever!
