Entertainment Review
The article focuses on several issues related to music. If Western music were, like most of the other arts, supported by a really long tradition, the issue of present and future progress in music would perhaps be less important. If, for instance, there were extensive musical pieces dating back to the time of Euripides, or even going back a thousand years, music as people know it would seem less new. The fact is that only a few fragments have survived the Greco-Roman era. Even, the music of the Middle Ages that can be reconstructed and performed, was left by its composers in such a vague and fragmentary form that the authenticity of its modern interpretations can never finally be proved.
