Face it: Classical music is a dead language. In the latest skirmish of the Thirty Ears War, music-lover Claire Rydell writes that composers "Milk a Dead-End Aesthetic" (Counterpunch, May 2), composer Burt Goldstein retorts with ad hominem tut-tutting ("New Music Merits Respect, Not Attack," May 16), Times Music and Dance Critic Martin Bernheimer scolds the troops for defecting ("Modern Progress Under Salonen's Green Umbrella," May 18), and UCLA Professor Paul Reale preaches that history will go on ("In Support of Well-Conceived Music--Old and New," May 23)
