I had a friend who was playing a doctoral piano recital for a degree in contemporary performance. His committee would not let him program Morton Feldman’s music on the recital.
See, there was once this idea that some music is hard, and some music is easy. That some music is “simple,” which means it is less challenging to play that music well.
As though style and elegance could be easy, or simple.
