I hereby predict that there will be a resurgence in classical music listening driven by the upcoming generation! Why?
I just read the list of top ten classical albums in the Philadelphia region as published in the Philadelphia Inquirer of August 6, 2006. Listed in spots 2, 7 and 8 are Baby Einstein albums. Surely with all those babies being exposed to classical music through the Baby Einstein series the future is bright for classical music!
Here is the Philly top ten clasical albums list, if you can stomach it:
1. Andrea Bocelli...Amore
2. Baby Einstein...Lullaby Classics
3. Il Divo...Il Divo
4. Andrea Bocelli...Andrea
4. (tie)...Il Divo...Ancora
6. Josh Groban...Closer
7. Baby Einstein...Traveling Melodies
8. Baby Einstein...Playtime Music Box
9. Josh Groban...Josh Groban
10. Best Classics 100...Best Classics 100
Guess I have a lot to learn about classical music since I can't find a single one of these top 10's in my collection. Maybe I have the definition of classical music all wrong.
