One of the disadvantages of hearing so much music at this forum is that you may get the good, bad and the ugly from the same composer.
But I would not give up that gift for anything....because the more we hear the better we understand the composer.
But sometimes it is not just age which affects the temperment and style of the music.
I keep thinkling about Braga Santos and Malipiero whose melodic music became more astringent later in their careers because they were being ignored.
The demand was for the dissonant..
With these two, I enjoy the astringent as well, and even with a different message of cynicism and pessimism the gift never left .. it is still fascinating
music to me.
It's almost as if they said "OK...u no likea da melody anymore..I geev u dis!!"
