    MOONLIGHT

    TRAGEDY

     

    The 1st movement of the Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven has been so boringly,unindividually,and inexpressively played during the last 100+ years because of the Anti-Expressive Conservatory's influence within culture  to reduce Classical music to mono-dimensional metronomic physical notes...(all in the name of taste)...Does any performer below escape that quandary and how...?
