REMEMBER: cook is talking about "classical" music in this chapter

read pp. 108 - 115

vocab: concision, indicative, replete, reiterate, inviolate, impute, austere, spurious

discussion questions:
does pop music "have gender" apart from that if its creator? (what about examples like the fact that a jewish man wrote "Killing me softly."?)
can Tomlinson's arguement (p. 114-115) be used to help explain the decline of "classical" music in America?
what differences do you hear between beethoven and schubert? i'm posting 3 examples at www.hotcuprecords.com/music/!@$#@$%:

symphonies: mvt. 1 of symph. 9 by beethoven (/muisc/beethovenS91.mp3) and mvt. 2 of the "unfinished" symph. by Schubert (/music/schubertS.mp3). (examples used on pp. 108-110)
