Episode 764: And Yet It Moves Me

On the Overthinking It Podcast we tackle classical music today: What even is it, and what is it good for?

Join the Overthinking It Discord!

Mark Lee, Jordan Stokes, and Matthew Wrather overthink classical music in light of Gustavo Dudamel’s move from LA to New York. They struggle with a definition of classical music, and to theorize about uselessness and artiness. They talk about how the Western European art music of the common practice tradition plays a role in their own lives.
